LONDON - Arsene Wenger was furious after Arsenal were denied what seemed a clear penalty in Wednesday's 1-1 Champions League quarterfinal draw with Liverpool.

Alexander Hleb appeared to be tugged back by Dirk Kuyt and boss Wenger told BBC Sport: "It was a blatant penalty, under the eyes of the referee."

Wenger, though, feels his side will get the result they need to progress in the second leg at Anfield next Tuesday.

"It will be a test for us, but we have the desire to do it," he said.

"I feel we were not rewarded for what we produced - and we had the chances to win it.

"We were a bit unlucky with a big decision of the referee on the penalty. It's difficult to take, but we have to swallow it." - BBC
