Arsenal Have Been Denied The Most Blatant Penalty You'll See All Season, Their Fans Are Outraged

Arsenal fans are furious they haven't received a penalty after Nelson Semedo's challenge on Gabriel Martinelli.

The Gunners believe they should've been given a spot kick one minute into tonight's clash at the Emirates Stadium.

Martin Odegaard intercepted a loose ball in the Wolves half and worked the ball to Alexandre Lacazette, who played in Bukayo Saka.

Saka then tapped the ball on and Martinelli was bundled over by Semedo as he attempted to take a shot.

Referee Martin Atkinson didn't believe there was enough in the challenge and VAR didn't intervene either.

Supporters have reacted to Semedo's tackle and they can't believe the decision of no penalty was allowed to stand.

One commented: "Why is it every f**king game man."

Another said: "So that 5 out of our last 5 penalty appeals wrongly waved away, by my count. Can anyone explain this?"

A third put: "It wasn’t even looked at."

While someone tweeted: "This is a joke now it’s every week we get awful decisions."

Wolves took the lead inside ten minutes thanks to Hwang Hee-chan.

Gabriel underhit his backpass to Aaron Ramsdale and it let Hwang nip in to round the Arsenal goalkeeper and tap home his fifth goal of the season.

Bruno Lage's side are on an incredible run of form and are dark horses for the top four.

Arsenal also have Champions League aspirations both sides want to close the gap on Manchester United, who currently sit in fourth.

Manager Mikel Arteta was asked about the visitors' top four aspirations and spoke glowingly of their form this campaign.

He told Arsenal's official website: They look like it, the way they are playing and the results they are getting, the consistency they are showing. For sure.

"You look at the last two games as well and how they played against those teams, they are going to be up there."
