- Eden Hazard won his side a penalty when he went down in the second half
- Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger labelled the referee's decision as 'farcical'
- Wenger also added that he plans to appeal the FA's charge against him
Arsène Wenger made the extraordinary claim that he knew beforehand his Arsenal team would be the victim of a “farcical” refereeing decision as he continued to rage against perceived injustice at the hands of officials.
Chelsea equalised after referee Anthony Taylor ruled that Hector Bellerin had kicked Eden Hazard and, having also seen his team drop points following a penalty against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, Wenger again unleashed his frustrations.
"You can listen to every interview I said," Wenger told Sky Sports. "I stick to everything I said without a problem.
"The regret we have is we were first to score and after that we have a farcical decision.
"Look, since the start of the season it is what we have to take. I say it's a farcical decision - you could give 10 penalties like that a game. You read the foreign papers what they write about that and the English papers and you will see a difference.
"What I find terrible is that we have just seen a great football game and we talk only about things nothing to do with football. For me it would be nice to at some stage talk about football again."
