West Brom deserved penalty at Arsenal - Rodriguez

Baggies boss Tony Pulis was fuming with Alexis Sanchez after the game and branded the Arsenal forward a "cheat" for diving to win a free-kick on the edge of the box.

Referee Bobby Madley later turned down Albion penalty appeals when Jay Rodriguez was brought down by Shkodran Mustafi with the scoreline at 0-0, and also gave Arsenal a spot-kick which was converted by Alexandre Lacazette. The referee had a great view.

"Jay is honest, and doesn't get his reward for being honest".

The Gunners did not score from that incident but Pulis was unimpressed by the Chilean's antics.

"In the game's first free-kick Sanchez dives and should be booked".

The Frenchman had a solid display against West Brom as we were in possession for most of the time, however, he was caught out of position which led to Rodriguez's penalty shout. "And none of my players are told to roll around". In the case of someone like Sanchez, who moves with such pace and agility, any type of touch is enough to send him to the floor, especially from some of the physical defenders West Brom have on their books. For me it was a penalty, sometimes you get them sometimes you don't.

Out of the back three, Monreal had the best performance on the left-hand side, making four tackles and winning three headers as well as getting back on the line to clear a Jay Rodriguez header off the line late in the first half.

"But it wasn't, so I got back up, saw the chance to score and Cech made a good save. It is one of those things but it is just hard because if you do get that goal, 1-0 up changes the game", Rodriguez said.

"Jake [Livermore] should score the rebound and we should score other goals, we had opportunities".

Sanchez certainly didn't play like a man who couldn't have been much closer to leaving the club on deadline day, yet his actions early in the second half haven't gone down well.
