The Everton manager David Moyes thinks the Arsenal captain Cesc Fábregas should have received a red card for complaining to referee Lee Mason for a controversial decision last nights game at the Emirates.
Lee Mason incorrectly allowed Saha to receive the ball in an offside position from which he scored and Fábregas protested against the obvious mistake.
Even David Moyes agreed that the goal should not have stood saying: “I think it was offside, the wrong decision, but it was not Everton who made the decision”.
He continued: “I also thought there were some really bad tackles. But Fábregas’ comments to the officials when he was coming down the tunnel warranted a sending off”.
The Arsenal manger disagreed with Moyes’ account saying: “I was next to Cesc Fábregas at half-time. He didn’t speak to the referee at half-time. I spoke to the referee. If you have the film on camera, you can check”.
Arsenal protested the referees decision to let a Louis Saha goal stand when he was clearly passed the ball while in an offside position, but Arsenal eventually won the game anyway after goals from Arshavin and Koscielny in the second half.
