Wenger, taking charge of a record 811th game, had been incensed by a contentious late penalty decision given against defender Calum Chambers for handball that cost his side all three points at The Hawthorns and was said to have angrily confronted referee Mike Dean.

It was put to the Arsenal boss that many felt Jack Wilshere had also dived in the match just before he scored, but he stressed that didn't diminish his complaints.
