Swimming in the first leg of the relay...

‘Arsenal don’t get fair share of penalties,’ claims Arsene Wenger after Stoke condemn Gunners

20/08/2017, China, Multi Sports, China Publications, Article # 23820829
Arsene Wenger believes his side does not receive its fair share of penalty decisions, a view he claimed was demonstrated in their 1-0 Premier League defeat at Stoke City.
