Wener annoyed by Rovers

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was less than pleased with the tactics employed by Blackburn Rovers during their 2-1 win over the Gunners at Ewood Park.

Both goals from the home side came from corners, with several Rovers players putting visiting keeper Lukasz Fabianski under pressure without seeming to make any effort to play the ball.

Afterwards, Wenger fumed:"There is no purpose to play the ball from the Blackburn players – they don't even watch the ball.

"He (Fabianski) had two players in front of him all the time and every time it was to stop him getting the ball.

In football when you don't go for the ball and you stop the keeper going for the ball it is a foul.

"I think the referee cannot allow that. I am very disappointed the referee lets that happen in a football game, it is unfair to a goalkeeper.

"They (Blackburn) do it well, but when you feel that as a referee you have to give more protection.

"It doesn't take away the fact we weren't good, but that is completely unfair."
