Wenger set for lengthy ban following ‘cheat’ claims about referee

Arsenal claimed a dramatic 2-1 victory over Burnley at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday but manager Arsene Wenger was left incensed during the 93rd minute of the clash after referee Jon Moss has awarded the Clarets a penalty, with the Gunners leading 1-0.

Wenger was sent to the stands for his reaction and the French boss is now set to face further sanction from the FA for his shove on fourth official Anthony Taylor as he made his way down the tunnel.

Now according to reports from the Metro, revelations can be made that Wenger was sent off due to the fact that he called Moss a ‘cheat’ and now the Arsenal is set to be handed a lengthy ban for his comments as well as actions during the game.

Gedion Zelalem wanted by VVV Venlo

Despite making his debut for Arsenal as a 16-year-old back in 2014, Gedion Zelalem has since failed to make enough progress to be able to earn regular minutes on the pitch for the Gunners and the midfielder currently finds himself in the fringes at the Emirates Stadium.

With Zelalem struggling to earn first team football, it is believed that the 19-year-old will now be allowed to leave Arsenal on loan this month and now revelations can be made that Dutch outfit VVV Venlo are interested in signing the ex-Rangers man.


Danny Murphy and Martin Keown slam Granit Xhaka

Granit Xhaka is a very good player but his temperament has often been put into question and the Swiss international recently earned his ninth career sending off for a dangerous challenge on Steven Defour during Arsenal’s 2-1 victory over Burnley at the Emirates Stadium.

Following the game, Xhaka has been widely criticized regarding his lack of discipline and now Danny Murphy and Martin Keown have gone on to express their concern regarding the 24-year-old.

Danny Murphy said, "I feel a little bit for him because he is not being played in the right role, he's in the holding role but he is becoming a liability.

"This technique he has found for tackling is silly. He keeps getting himself in these predicaments and he will end up not playing because the other players will get sick of it. I would hope someone would say to me you need to calm down. Who is saying that to him?"

Adding to Murphy’s comments, Keown said, "He needs to clean up his act but he is with the right kind of manager.  It's a ridiculous number of red cards, he is getting the balance wrong.

"Arsene Wenger apologised after the game but Xhaka should be apologising for getting sent off. He will learn, he will change - he has to change."

The refs have been cheating Arsenal for 10 years. If the ref gave a penalty for the fault on Mustafi we wouldn't have to label Moss as the cheat that he is. Only Mike Oliver and refs of his caliber should ref in a top league as the EPL. These scum low life incompetent referees diminish the quality of this league. EPL has the worst referees on the planet.Time to drain the swamp and bring in new refs that can actually referee.

Hope Arsene is not banned for too long - maybe a hefty fine because he has already apologized. Xhaka should not get many more chances as he is becoming a liability.
