Arsenal’s West Brom penalty scored settled vs Bournemouth

Arsene Wenger banned after West Brom

There was a tinge of irony in Arsene Wenger’s direction on Sunday as Bournemouth took on Arsenal.

The match was goalless at the break, however Bournemouth could have won a spot kick.

Wenger wasn’t in the Gunners dugout once again. The Arsenal boss is currently enduring a touchline ban after what recently happened at West Brom.

Wenger lost it with ref Mike Dean during a 1-1 draw with the Baggies. West Brom scored with a late controversial penalty.

But on Sunday against Bournemouth it was Arsenal who got away with a stonewall penalty call.

Calum Chambers vs Baggies

To recap, a few weeks ago at the Hawthorns Calum Chambers had a penalty awarded against him a minute from time.

The handball looked completely unintentional and the decision was very harsh.

Jay Rodriguez made no mistake from the spot.

Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi handball vs Bournemouth

Should Bournemouth have won a penalty against Arsenal?

Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi elbowed a delivery into the Gunners box following a Bournemouth corner.

Iwobi looked like he knew exactly what he was doing. His elbow was in a bizarre position as he seemed to misjudge a header to clear the ball.

But no decision was given to the Cherries.

That lead many to claim Arsenal got away with it, and that levels out what happened against West Brom.
