Former Chelsea and Celtic striker Chris Sutton says that if Arsenal's penalty decision against Southampton had gone against the Gunners then Arsene Wenger would have seen it.

Arsenal were handed a controversial injury time penalty against the Saints at the Emirates Stadium, which Santi Cazorla converted to hand his side a 2-1 win.

Jose Fonte was judged to have fouled Olivier Giroud after he tangled with the Frenchman in the penalty box, but after the game Wenger claimed not to have seen the incident in question when asked for his view.

Sutton is not convinced and feels if the shoe had been on the other foot then Wenger would have seen it and would have rightly been fuming about the spot-kick being awarded.

"If that had gone against Arsenal then Arsene Wenger would have seen it", Sutton said on the BBC's Final Score programme.


"That just wasn't a penalty.

"If that was against Arsenal he would be furious and quite rightly so", the former striker continued.

"It wasn't a penalty. Not enough contact. You'd give ten, 15 penalties a game if that was the case."

Arsenal's 2-1 win over Southampton means they now have seven points from their opening four Premier League games, with a trip to Hull City to come next on Saturday.

However, before then the Gunners must travel to the French capital for a Champions League group stage clash against Paris Saint-Germain.
