However, Jack Wilshere opened scoring in the second half, slotting the ball past Thibaut Courtois at the near post. I knew before the game that the last 20 minutes would be hard for us because we had a big disadvantage with the schedule.

Then, during post-match press conference, he added: "We got again a farcical decision on the penalty but we knew that as well before so we have to deal with that..."

Once he had calmed down, Wenger reserved praise for Arsenal midfielder Wilshere, who scored his first league goal for the club since May 2015.

"He is where not many people expected him to be". I would say that means everyone had given up on him.

Arsene Wenger remains adamant Eden Hazard deceived the referee in order to win a contentious penalty for Chelsea during Wednesday's 2-2 draw against Arsenal.

Commenting on the Nigeria international's showing in the Premier League match, Daily Mail wrote: "Seemed nearly afraid of the man he was up against - youngster Ainsley Maitland-Niles".

"For sure there is a lot of frustration from the coach after the game".

He said before the game against Chelsea: "I must say what is more frustrating for me is that it happened many times this season - at Stoke, at Watford, at Manchester City, at West Brom".

The club didn't put their first formal offer on the table to Ozil's representative until December - a delay of nearly 10 months - while Wilshere has also yet to be offered a contract, despite Wenger claiming there is a difference in financial terms between club and player.

The new season appeared to be shaping up into a two-horse race between the Manchester clubs, but as Manchester United started to stutter in the autumn, Manchester City just kept on going, and an 18-match winning streak means they have nearly wrapped up the 2017/18 title already.

"We must be realistic".
