As Laurent Koscielny lay on the ground holding his face, Bobby Madley let play amble on only to then point to spot and give a penalty we’ve been denied a thousand times in recent seasons.

I might exaggerate slightly, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

The commentators on my stream couldn’t shut up about how they were ‘both at it’ even though they clearly weren’t.

Coming on the back of a clear, and terrible, foul by Nacho Monreal up near the Arsenal corner flag, it was all set up for Arsenal’s win to be negated by the fact they dared enjoy some luck.

Asked about the penalty after the game, Arsene Wenger when informed that it seemed harsh, replied, “Oh yeah?” and then shrugged.

He seen it. He knows. He doesn’t give a f**k.

Cant say that I blame him given the fortune he’s seen others enjoy over the years while Arsenal fans still wonder if he sold Arsenal’s quota in return for the magic beans that germinated into the Invincibles.

I wouldn’t care either.
