Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was in the dark over accusations that Cesc Fabregas spat at Brian Horton.

Frenchman unhappy with Hull City's tactics

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was in the dark over accusations that Cesc Fabregas spat at Hull City assistant manager Brian Horton after his side's 2-1 win at Emirates Stadium. Tigers chief Phil Brown accused Gunners skipper Fabregas of spitting at Horton following an altercation between the pair at the end of the game. Fabregas did not feature in the Arsenal side as he recovers from injury, but he walked onto the pitch at the final whistle to celebrate with his team-mates. Wenger insisted he knew nothing about the alleged incident between his skipper and Horton.

Did not see

"I did not see anything," Wenger said. "I'm here to speak about football. "I'm not a specialist to create newspaper stories, or to create things that are minor that might have happened in the tunnel. "I'm sorry, I can't speak about something I haven't seen." Wenger also rejected Hull's protests that William Gallas' winning goal was offside with the Frenchman suggesting Boaz Myhill deflected the ball into the defender's path. "It is not offside because the ball was deflected by the fist of the goalkeeper," the Frenchman said. "(Johan) Djourou first, the goalkeeper after, then a foul on Gallas. We should have got two goals." Wenger was upset with Boaz Myhill time-wasting in the second half. "If I asked you if their goalkeeper wasted time I'm confident that you would say yes," Wenger said.
