Man Utd's Fletcher blasts: Wenger has done me over!

Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher believes he's become a victim of the "anti-football" comments of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger. Fletcher is adamant he did not foul Ashley Cole for the free-kick that led to Chelsea's winner scored by John Terry last night.

The Reds' midfielder wasn't publicly named by Wenger but nobody was left in any doubt to whom he was directing the accusations.

"It was clearly not a foul. I knew at the time and I have watched it again on the replay. I back-heeled the ball and Cole just jumps up in the air and the ref gives a foul," said Fletcher.

"I think we are starting to see Mr Wenger's comments starting to influence referees which is a shame really.

"Now we have to raise our game and ensure these decisions are not affecting the game."
