Published Add your comment

John Arne Riise has denied Fulham players deliberately tried to get Arsenal defender Johan Djourou sent off on Sunday.

Steve Sidwell and Bobby Zamora netted in the final minutes of the match to secure Fulham a 2-1 win, with the catalyst seemingly Djourou's red card for a second bookable offence 12 minutes before time.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claimed after the match that the Cottagers attempted to get the Switzerland international sent off, but Riise has followed manager Martin Jol in denying the allegation, and said: "We would never do that."
