Arsene Wenger refused to blame Santi Cazorla after Arsenal defeat at West Brom [Video]

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger chose his words very carefully after Arsenal 2-1 defeat at West Brom on Saturday.The journalists at the post-match presser asked Wenger if he had ever seen a penalty similar to Cazorla’s miss, presumably hoping for comparisons with John Terry.

Mathieu Flamini refused to blame Santi Cazorla’s penalty slip for Arsenal’s defeat at West Brom.

The midfielder fell and skied his late spot-kick as he squandered the chance to rescue a point at The Hawthorns.

The Gunners went down 2-1 and missed the chance to go top of the Barclays Premier League while title rivals Manchester City were thumped 4-1 by Liverpool.

But Flamini insisted Cazorla should not shoulder the responsibility for the loss after Arsenal dominated but failed to recover from Mikel Arteta’s first-half own goal.
