The Arsenal Manager Arsène Wenger hit out after the match and he looked quite dissatisfied with the referees in the match. Not only he thought that Marcos made a foul while scoring the goal, but also rated the overall refereeing not up to the mark. He was quite blunt to say that it was a foul. He also indicated that the first goal was the physiological advantage for the Chelsea team that Arsenal could not break. He also defended the plan to substitute Hector Bellerin as he was dazed after the blow from Marcos Alonso at the Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea now tops the Premier League Table with 59 Points after playing 24 matches. Arsenal, on the other hand, is at 3rd Place with 47 points and played equal number of matches.
