Reports claimed the club had spoken to the governing body of match officials about fouls against the winger.

Gunners manager Arteta said they have “daily communication”, but “nothing specific” on that topic.

“I think the referees know the tactics of the opponents and that some .ers invite more tackles,” he said.

Arteta, whose side are fourth in the Premier League and host Liverpool in the FA Cup third round on Sunday, added:

“I think that’s been going on for two years. We have wingers that provoke a lot of fouls and attention. That’s something normal.”
