Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger has defended Aaron Ramsey from accusations of making too much of a push by Burnley’s James Tarkowski which saw the Gunners awarded a late penalty at Turf Moor.
Alexis Sanchez converted the spot-kick deep into added-on time to snatch a 1-0 victory and three points for the visitors.
Burnley were incensed by referee Lee Mason’s decision and claimed Ramsey had gone to ground too easily, but Wenger believed Mason was right to award the penalty.
The Frenchman, “It looked a clear penalty. I’d have to watch again but there was one on Bellerin as well. I can understand why they were disappointed but from outside it looked a penalty.”
