Wenger questioned on handling the fourth official

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was question by reporters tonight as to whether or not he put his hands on fourth official Martin Atkinson following his side's 1-1 draw with Sunderland.

Members of the media asked Wenger afterwards about a suggestion that he had put his hands on Atkinson, Wenger replied:
"Take the pictures and look at it.
"I complain to nobody, especially not to you."
Asked whether he was angry about the amount of injury time had been played, the Frenchman said:
"If you have a watch, you can control. It's as simple as that.
"I believe the performance was good. We had problems to start in the first half.
"In the second half, we played very well. We were, even with 10 men, in control of the game and unfortunately in the 95th minute, they equalised.
"I was very pleased. We could battle, we could play, we had all the ingredients of a good team.
"We had a slow start, but in the second half, we did well."
