Arsenal boss Wenger: Bendtner no diver

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists Nicklas Bendtner is no diver.

The Dane was booked for diving during their victory over Liverpool last night.

Wenger told arsenal.com: "Frankly from outside it didn't look like that. I have been told that [it was] but I thought first of all the referee had given a penalty; unfortunately he gave us a yellow card. He [Bendtner] will be upset but I have to check the video. It is very difficult to say if he has been touched."

Asked if he felt Steven Gerrard dived to win a penalty, Wenger added: "I leave that controversial side to you [the reporters]. I am sure you can make something out of it but do it without me."
