West Brom pay the penalty in EPL

Arsenal ended a run of four games without victory after Mikel Arteta's controversial opening penalty helped them defeat West Bromwich Albion 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Arteta opened the scoring in the Premier League clash after Santi Cazorla went down after a challenge by Steven Reid, although replays showed the defender did not touch his opponent.
