Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was not happy with fourth official Anthony Taylor
He said: “I am big enough to stand up for what I do.
“When I don’t behave like I think I should behave, I am big enough to say I am not right. I’m a passionate guy and I believe that I am completely committed in my job and want to win the football games.
“I don’t know how I will be punished if I am punished, the only thing I can say is that when I was sent off I was surprised, and I was in the tunnel because I thought I had the right to be the tunnel.”
