Arsene Wenger has refused to blame Santi Cazorla for the los against West Brom after he missed a late penalty.
Arsenal were behind against West Brom and Cazorla had the chance to change the fortunes and force a draw.
Unfortunately, Cazorla could only send his spotkick over the crossbar, but Wenger doesn’t blame him.
“I have seen a few penalties, but I don’t really know what happened,” Wenger said at a news conference.
“You can talk to him and he is so disappointed. But it is difficult to blame Cazorla for that.
“It is a big blow for us. If the game reflects the result then okay, but when you drop points when you have come out of a game and think you have not done the maximum to produce you cannot be happy.
“We have to take it on the chin and bounce back in our next game.”
The miss from the spot means Cazorla is still waiting for his first goal this season after 18 appearances in all competitions.
