Arsene Wenger lamented the lack of penalties awarded to his side at the Emirates Stadium this season after referee Anthony Taylor rejected a strong spot-kick appeal late on in their 3-3 draw with Norwich.
The dropped points mean both Tottenham and Newcastle could leapfrog the Gunners if they win their games on Sunday, and the day was further marred by the news that full-back Bacary Sagna had suffered a broken leg which rules the Frenchman out of Euro 2012.
Wenger said: "Here the whole season we have got zero penalties. It is absolutely amazing, because you see other clubs who have got 10.
"I don't know (why the penalty was not given), we have to accept the decision of the referee."
