Arsene Wenger was not happy with referee Jonathan Moss following Arsenal's 4-0 hammering at the hands of Southampton on Boxing Day.
The Gunners missed the chance to go top of the table after Liverpool beat Leicester 1-0, but instead of admitting his side were thoroughly outclassed at St. Mary's Stadium, the Frenchman turned his attentions to the official and insisted his side were unlucky for the first three goals.
And it seems Wenger wasn't the only person unhappy with the referee after a petition was created by 'Arsenal Today' insisting Moss be banned from taking charge of games involving the north London club.

Three of Southampton's goals may have been contentious but there was no denying Wenger's side got exactly what they deserved from the game.
It was not Moss' best display of the season, but neither was it Arsenal's, who were second best throughout the 90 minutes on the south coast.
Victor Wanyama, who has been linked with a move to the Emirates, dominated the midfield as he nullified Mesut Ozil. Francis Coquelin's presence was also sorely missed in front of the defence.
It was just one of those days for the Gunners, and it casts huge doubt over their ability to hold their nerve in the title race.
They are back in action on Bank Holiday Monday as they welcome Eddie Howe's Bournemouth to the Emirates.
Sitting second in the table, Arsenal are still well in the title race but fans will be expecting an emphatic victory to answer any critics.
