West Brom manager Tony Pulis has accused Alexis Sanchez of “cheating” during Arsenal’s 2-0 win over the Baggies in the Premier League.
Referee Bobby Madley also failed to give the Baggies what Pulis felt was a certain penalty for a foul on Jay Rodriguez when the game was goalless.
“In the game’s first free-kick Sanchez dives and should be booked. That’s cheating,” Pulis told Sky Sports.
“Then the tackle in the box on Jay, it is a stonewall penalty.”
Sanchez went down under a challenge from Baggies defender Craig Dawson in the early minutes of the match and Pulis was incensed on the touchline.
Then after seven minutes Rodriguez appeared to be fouled inside the box by Gunners defender Shkodran Mustafi, but Madley did not award a penalty.
The West Brom forward quickly got up and shot, but his effort was brilliantly pushed onto the post by Gunners keeper Petr Cech.
