Former Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann claims that the club have suffered the worst penalty decisions this season.

Former Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann has claimed that the club have suffered the worst refereeing decisions in the Premier League so far.

Arsene Wenger's side currently sit sixth in the table, eight points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea after 23 games.

The North London outfit have won just two of their last nine top-flight matches, and in that time they have conceded penalties that enraged Wenger.

The spot kicks were awarded in last month's 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion and the following 2-2 draw with Chelsea.

While speaking to Bild, Lehmann said: "We had to accept by far the most bad calls in penalty decisions against us. We hope this will balance out over the remainder of the season."

This weekend, the Gunners will take on Crystal Palace on home soil.
