​Wenger still riled by Hazard penalty award

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger continues to claim Eden Hazard cheated to win a penalty in last week’s Premier League draw with Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium.

Hazard went down under a challenge from Hector Bellerin, the Blues winger picking himself up to convert the resulting penalty in a thrilling 2-2 draw.

Wenger repeatedly labelled the decision by match official Anthony Taylor “farcical” after the game and he will face Hazard again on Wednesday, with the Gunners taking on Chelsea in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final.

“I questioned the decision of the referee,” said Wenger. “Then, we are objective. You look at the picture.

“You see how Hazard goes down and you see how quickly he takes the penalty when he gets the penalty.

“If he was so injured, why did he take the penalty? He made more of it, [like a] professional, basically, and shouts. I can understand that.

“I do not blame Hazard. He acted in a very professional way to get the penalty for his team, which he did well.”
