  • Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger complained his side had been denied a goal and a penalty by incorrect decisions from the match officials in the 1-0 loss at Stoke.Wenger claimed a 72nd-minute Alexandre Lacazette effort that was ruled out for offside should have stood "100 per cent".And he also protested that referee Andre Marriner was wrong not to have awarded a spot-kick in the first half when Hector Bellerin went down in the Stoke box under the attentions of Mame Diouf, with the Gunners boss adding: "We know we don't get penalties."Giving his thoughts after a game that was settled by a strike in the 47th minute from Potters debutant Jese Rodriguez, Wenger said: "I believe it is the kind of night where you are angry."That is because not only did we not score with the number of chances we had, we made stupid mistakes centrally for the goal, first by losing the ball and after by not defending properly."And on top of that as well I think we were unlucky with some decisions from th..

  • West Brom's match-winner Hal Robson-Kanu claimed there was no intent to elbow Matthew Lowton in an incident that saw him dismissed in the 1-0 victory over Burnley. The Wales international became just the fourth player in Premier League history to come off the bench, score and be sent off in a lively 20-minute cameo at Turf Moor.His dismissal came seven minutes from time when the upper part of his forearm caught Lowton in the head as Robson-Kanu attempted to challenge him for a header in the air, with referee Martin Atkinson immediately brandishing a red card.Yet Robson-Kanu took to social media on Saturday night to explain the contact was purely accidental.Writing on his Instagram account, he said: "Ah!! Well done to the boys for seeing the game out, foul wasn't intentional and hopefully that'll be seen! Another win, meant a lot to the boys."An appeal against Robson-Kanu's suspension could be lodged by the Baggies, although boss Tony Pulis said after the game t..

  • Treasuries Close Roughly Flat After Seeing Early Strength After an early move to the upside, treasuries pulled back over the course of the trading day on Friday before closing roughly flat. Bond prices spent much of the afternoon lingering near the unchanged line. Subsequently, the yield on the benchmark ten-year note, which moves opposite of its price, edged down by less than a basis point to 2.194 percent. The ten-year yield hit its lowest intraday level in well over a month in morning trading before moving back to the upside. The early strength among treasuries was partly due to continued weakness on Wall Street amid concerns about political turmoil in Washington and the terrorist attack in Barcelona. The subsequent pullback by treasuries was attributed to reports of the removal of White House chief strategist Steve Bannon. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders later confirmed the reports of Bannon's departure, calling the move a mutual decision betwee..
