I thought Ospina should have done a lot better on their goal.
Contcat was made with Welbeck and it caused him to go over, the 4th official was right there, but lets see what ITV say later tonight.

I thought they fell apart not long after we equalised



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Having seen the ITV replay it was only the slightest of contact that was made. Welbeck made the best of it and was lucky to get a pen.But the defender should have more sense, what is the point of brushing your arm across an attacker if you are not attempting to impede them

A lot of people think Ospina should've done better on their goal and I agree he probably should've. I thought he should've after seeing it in real time, but after seeing the replays there was a lot of swerve on it. Difficult one but I'm trying to be understanding as I don't rate Ospina at all.

You're right, Welbeck made the most of it but why else would Rodriguez put his arm across him if not to stop him? He's entitled to. At the end of the day I'm very happy for Welbeck and I'm happy we've gone through.

There's no making excuses for it just because it went for us. It's a contact sport, the dive was embarrassing.

If that's Harry Kane or Dele Alli against us, there would be uproar.



Albert Einstein once said: "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

I was with 11 non-Arsenal fans last night and everyone said the same thing, dive but they wouldn't complain if their team did it to win a penalty.

From where I was, initial reaction was a pen, but having seen it back it wasn't. I don't think it was a dive per se, but I think he was just going to go down in frustration at the ball getting away from him. Not sure he expected it to be given. Hard to know, but after years of watching teams cheat to beat us at the is point I honestly don't care.

Also thought Ospina should have done better with the goal, He was hardly at full stretch, had bad positioning and seemed slow to react.

dont love ospina but to be fair to him that ball hit the literal corner of the goal. caught a little post. he was slow to react but that was as well placed of a shot as there could have been.

definite dive for welbeck. maybe he was just falling because the ball got away but thats a harsh call.

on the whole though we were the better side, so i think its a fair result.
