Arsene Wenger vows to give Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck ‘honest feeling’ over ‘dive’ for penalty v AC Milan

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger refused to criticise Danny Welbeck after he was widely accused of diving to win a penalty in the Gunners’ Europa League win over AC Milan on Thursday night.
Leading 2-0 from last week’s first leg in Italy, the Gunners were shaken by Hakan Calhanoglu’s long-range goal in the 35th minute but hit back to win 3-1 on the night and assure themselves of a spot in the quarter-finals with a comfortable 5-1 aggregate Welbeck levelled by winning and converting a dubious penalty after going down under minimal contact from Ricardo Rodriguez, infuriating Milan’s players.The 27-year-old was accused of a “blatant dive” by Alan Shearer and Gary Lineker and, almost three-quarters of respondents to a poll sent out from the official Arsenal Twitter account said they would not have awarded the penalty.
