Arsene Wenger has backed the refereeing of Mike Dean in the Gunner’s 2-0 thrashing of Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
The Boss also spoke to Sky Sports about the Arsenal front-line partnership of Alexandre Lacazette, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
Wenger told Sky Sports: “In a derby, urgency plays a part. We had that on our side. We didn’t lose defensive focus for 90 minutes.
“We were lucky Alexis Sanchez didn’t play in the international break and Alexandre Lacazette only played one game.
“I’m convinced that Mesut Ozil adds physicality to his game and when he needs it he can produce it. He got a standing ovation because he added to the team the defensive job. He’s not a specialist in that but he can do that because he’s an intelligent man.
“I don’t know where referee’s decisions went for us. I haven’t seen the offsides – the foul was a foul. I can give you plenty of games where we have had bad luck.
“We play in the Premier League and people want to go to different conclusions. Nothing is permanent in our job.”
