Jack Wilshere Takes Aim At Refereeing Decisions After Arsenal’s Carabao Cup Final Defeat

Arsenal midfielder Jack WIlshere has questioned some of the refereeing decisions that went against his side in Sunday’s Carabao Cup defeat.

The Gunners were soundly beaten by Manchester City at Wembley, the 3-0 scoreline fully justified as Arsenal meekly fell to pieces as Pep Guardiola’s side walked all over them.

Taking to social media on Monday, Wilshere acknowledged that Man City deserved the win, but felt that the first and second goals in particular should not have been allowed to stand.

Hard to put into words my emotions about yesterday. City are a good team and deserved to win yesterday. Alot of people have had thier say on us and we have to accept cristism when we lose. That being said i can't accept some of the decisions that went against us yesterday. What ever you say about the first goal, its a foul. The second goal is offside. There should have been a second yellow in the first half. Yes this happens in football but its still hard to accept. And people will say we are looking for excuses but these are facts. Anyway we need to respond, starting on thursday. Thanks to all the gooners for your support and trust me we feel the same but we need to stick together 🔴

Arsenal were unhappy that Sergio Aguero’s opener had been allowed to stand due to an apparent foul on Shkodran Mustafi, while there were claims that Leroy Sane was offside for the second goal. VAR saw no problem with either, and both were allowed to stand.

With the Premier League title now far beyond them (confirmation of that will come if Man City win at the Emirates on Thursday), the Europa League is now Arsenal’s last hope for a trophy this season – though getting past a rejuvenated AC Milan in the last 16 will be no easy feat.
