Wenger's anger at Dean

Arsene Wenger has deemed the Referee Mike Dean's decision to send off Emmanual Eboue against Tottenham on Sunday as "unacceptable".

The referee Mike Dean's decision to disallow a goal from Arsenal's Emmanual Eboue, a player he later sent off, against Tottenham on Sunday ensured he earned the ire of Arsene Wenger after the goalless London derby. Eboue's strike was ruled out as he was adjudged to have pushed Jonathan Woodgate, while the midfielder was also shown two yellow cards. "It's two points dropped because we had the best chances and we had a goal that was cancelled by an illusionary foul seen only by the referee. It is not acceptable, " said Wenger.
