Arsenal maintained their winning momentum against Stoke City yesterday with a 3-1 victory. However, it was a wrong call from Referee Lee Mason that helped the visitors to score.
Former Premier League referee Howard Webb believes Arsenal have the right to feel angry over the wrong decision of Ref Mason…
Arsenal new boy Granit Xhaka contested a header with Joe Allen and he was judged to have elbowed the player before Charlie Adam converted the penalty awarded for that challenge.
Webb said: “Harsh, Xhaka actually makes contact with the ball, there’s some follow-through momentum.
“If he throws his arm at Joe Allen that’s a separate action, that’s worth a penalty but you can’t say that’s intentional.
“It’s a coming together, there is some contact, for me I think it’s a harsh call and he’s really unlucky.”
However, Arsenal came back strongly and got the better of Stoke City with goals from Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil and Alex Iwobi.
