Tony Pulis livid at referee and "cheating" Alexis Sanchez

ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE scored for the third home match running for Arsenal after a tale of two penalty appeals in north London last night.

Pulis was furious that Sanchez went unpunished after winning a first-half free kick on the edge of the Albion penalty area with a theatrical fall after a challenge from Craig Dawson. Jay is very very honest and doesn't get any reward for it.

Pulis refused to talk about the decision claiming that "everyone has seen it and can make their minds up". Sanchez actually dives for the first free-kick and he should be booked for diving.

Rodriguez cleverly cut back on Shkodran Mustafi and looked certain to win a penalty when he was up-ended by the Arsenal defender.

The former Stoke City manager accused the Chile global of diving in the early stages of the match, and feels that referee Robert Madley should have booked him. It could have been the player (Mustafi) sent off as well.

"Then you see the tackle in the box on Jay, the referee has got a great view and it's a stonewall penalty, the great thing is, is that everybody has seen it tonight". "So it could be a penalty and playing against 10 men".

Arsene Wenger's side took the lead after 20 minutes, Lacazette heading in after goalkeeper Ben Foster had pushed Alexis Sanchez's free-kick on to the bar.

Even though we only drew last time out against Chelsea, that was probably the better overall team performance, however, thankfully there were a few standouts yesterday who helped us to three points.

Lacazette now sits on four goals from his first six Premier League games which keeps him in and around the conversation with the league's top scorers so hopefully he can continue to be efficient in front of goal. West Brom dropped to 12th and have now gone five games without a win in all competitions.
