Wenger accuses Sterling of 'diving' for penalty

Arsene Wenger accused Raheem Sterling of "diving" as the Arsenal manager claimed Manchester City will be even harder to stop if they continue to benefit from "unacceptable" refereeing decisions.

Wenger felt Sterling was guilty of simulation after tumbling under a challenge from Nacho Monreal early in the second half, which saw City awarded a penalty that Sergio Aguero converted.

And the Frenchman was also furious at the officials' failure to spot David Silva was offside in the lead-up to City's third goal from Gabriel Jesus.

"I believe it was no penalty," Wenger said. "We know that Raheem Sterling dives well, he does that very well. And the third goal was offside. I am very upset because at 2-1 we were in the game. The third goal was the killer.

"I am disappointed. You can accept if it City win in a normal way, but this is unacceptable.

"Last season we lost two offside goals and it has happened again."

He added: "Can anyone stop (City)? It will be difficult this season, the way they have started and the quality they have but you never know. If on top of that they have decisions at home like that, they will be unstoppable."

City boss Pep Guardiola hit back, insisting: "We won in the best way and we deserved it by far.

"They tell me the third goal was offside and I don't like to win in that way, but Arsenal won in Burnley 0-1 with a hand, so sometimes it's like this."
