It has been almost a week since the match against Chelsea, but Arsene Wenger still believes Alonso’s goal is a foul.
The Gunners lost 3-1 to Chelsea dropping 12 points behind leaders Chelsea. Alonso scored the opener for the Blues, a goal Wenger described as a foul.
Alonso towered over Bellerin to head in the goal and made contact with his face, leaving the defender with a concussion.
And Wenger has now gone one step further by branding the goal “scandalous”, saying it was vital in deciding what he suggested was an even match between the two sides.
“Overall we did not defend well, especially on the goals,” Wenger told Sky Sports.
“It was a very even game with unexpected goals and chances. If you look at the saves made by the two goalkeepers, it was a very even game.
“On top of that, I think we made some tactical mistakes, especially for the first goal and on top of that, we were unlucky as the goal was a scandalous goal.”
