Former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher says that the referee was wrong to award a penalty to Arsenal for an alleged foul by Bruno Martins Indi.

Former Premier League official Dermot Gallagher has admitted that Stoke City were unfortunate to concede a penalty against Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

With the scoreline at 0-0 heading into the final 15 minutes, the referee awarded a spot kick after deciding that Bruno Martins Indi had fouled Mesut Ozil inside the area.

However, replays showed that the Potters defender had made contact with the ball before any alleged infringement, and Gallagher says that the decision to penalise the Dutchman was "100% wrong".

Gallagher told Sky Sports News: "My first reaction was penalty. I can understand why the referee has given it. However, without doubt, when you see it again, Martins Indi definitely wins the ball and Ozil then goes into the back of him.

"It's not a penalty, unfortunately. I can see why he has given it, but the decision is 100% wrong."

Arsenal went on to register a 3-0 victory at the Emirates Stadium, with Stoke boss Paul Lambert acknowledging that he was disappointed with what turned out to be a game-changing decision.
