Arsenal slipped to a 1-1 draw against West Brom on New Year’s Eve thanks to a questionable 89th minute penalty – which goalkeeper Petr Cech was not happy about.
Cech, who was beaten from 12 yards by Jay Rodriguez to allow the Baggies to pick up an undeserved point, was booked for dissent before the spot kick by referee Mike Dean.
But the goalkeeper was furious with the official, claiming in his post-match interview with Sky Sports that he didn’t swear or get angry with Dean, but simply asked him why he had awarded the penalty, and gone back on his word.
Cech claimed that every season, players meet with the referees and agree that this type of close-range handball decision is unfair and the officials claim they will stop penalising players for a visibly unintentional offence.
Therefore the former Chelsea man said he was not angry, but disappointed that Dean had not stuck to his word, and gone ahead and awarded the penalty against Callum Chambers.
