After climbing back to the top four on the Premier League table following a significant victory over Queens Park Rangers on New Year's Eve, Arsene Wenger's Arsenal once again failed to make headway in a crucial game. Fulham stunned the Gunners 2-1 with a late fightback to claim a last-gasp victory at Craven Cottage on Monday night.
Things were more or less in place for Wenger in the first half. Laurent Koscielny nodded in the opener on 21 minutes. Fulham fought back with renewed vigour after the interval, but there were no significant results until five minutes from time when Steve Sidwell tapped home the equaliser.
The 78 minutes dismissal of Johan Djourou left a deep dent on the Arsenal defence line. Bobby Zamora volleyed home the winner deep into added time (93 minutes), his first goal in three months.
An angry Wenger slammed referee Lee Probert and even called him "naïve" over the red card for Djourou. "The moment (Djourou got) the first yellow card they (Fulham) tried every time to get him the second and the referee was naïve enough to give it. The referee influenced the game completely the wrong way," Wenger said after the game.
