Arsenal fans fume as Nicolas Pepe is denied a penalty against Bournemouth

Some Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter in fury after Nicolas Pepe was denied a penalty against Bournemouth.

With the score at 1-0 after David Luiz netted his first Premier League goal for the Gunners, £72m man Pepe was brought down by Diego Rico after a nice step-over.

The Cherries man actually got the ball, kicking it against the Ivory Coast international, but the ball also spun into a position where Pepe may have reached it before the Spaniard blocked him off – it was definitely a tough decision for Martin Atkinson.

One fan said that he was still fuming after the decision, before saying that English referees are amongst the most “incompetent” in the world.

Another supporter pointed to the decision that saw Sadio Mane awarded a soft, late penalty against Leicester to reinforce his point that Pepe should’ve also been awarded a spot kick.
