Wenger laments lack of penalties

Arsene Wenger lamented the lack of penalties awarded to his side at the Emirates Stadium this season after referee Anthony Taylor rejected a strong spot-kick appeal late on in their 3-3 draw with Norwich.

Wenger said: ''Here the whole season we have got zero penalties. It is absolutely amazing, because you see other clubs who have got 10. I don't know (why the penalty was not given), we have to accept the decision of the referee.''

Wenger admitted Arsenal had not been ''switched on'', although their afternoon started so well with a goal from Yossi Benayoun after just 65 seconds.

The Canaries rallied and were level after Wojciech Szczesny spilled Wes Hoolahan's shot before Grant Holt's deflected effort gave the visitors a deserved half-time lead.

Arsenal did come on strong after the break and a brace from Van Persie in the space of eight minutes put the home side back in charge, only for Norwich substitute Steve Morison to make it 3-3.

''It is more than frustrating because we were very poor in the first half, not switched on,'' Wenger added. ''The quality of our first half was absolutely not at the level we wanted to play in a decisive game like that.

''In the second half we did very well and created at least 10 chances, but again we did not take our chances. On top of that we gave them a third goal in a situation that was absolutely unbelievable. In the end we got punished for our mistakes.

''We have to analyse the reasons why we were not sharp enough in the first half. There is no obvious reason because we prepared normally as we always do, and maybe subconsciously we would win it.

''Norwich played well, you have to give them credit, they did well.''

Arsenal must now rely on results elsewhere as they hope to cling on to third spot and avoid a potential tricky Champions League qualifier or even dropping into the Europa League, should Chelsea win the European Cup.

''It leaves us with one mathematical thing - it is not in our hands anymore,'' the Arsenal boss said. ''We have to wait for the results to see where it leaves us tomorrow night.

''We knew that if we didn't win today, that would happen, that it's not in our hands.''

Norwich boss Paul Lambert, meanwhile, felt it was his side's best display of what has been a fine campaign back in the top flight.

Lambert said: ''The football we played was as good as any in my time. I thought we surpassed the win at Spurs, we were brilliant.

''But we do not know any other way to go out and play, we might get turned over at times, but we will always try to win. The team performance was first class. We certainly deserved something.''
