Bukayo Saka thought he had a decent penalty shout at the death of Arsenal's 2-2 draw against Bayern Munich and has come under fire for his reaction.

Was it or wasn't it? That is a debate about Arsenal having a blatant penalty shout at the end of their 2-2 draw against Bayern Munich.

Bukayo Saka was played through with only Manuel Neuer between him and the goal. Saka was then clipped by Neuer and went down in the box - a seemingly stone wall penalty. However on further inspection, it did look as if Saka moved his leg towards Neuer to initiate contact.

Either way we have seen incidents far less than that given and Saka's penalty shouts fell on deaf ears, much to the winger's annoyance.

To make matters worse, Saka has now been blasted by former West Ham star Paulo Di Canio who took aim at the winger after his antics on the pitch after the referee waved away his penalty shout.

"He moves blatantly the leg towards Neuer, it’s never a penalty," Di Canio said on Sky Sports' Italy via "He didn’t behave as an experienced player. He behaved liked a baby with no experience."

Now, those old enough to remember Di Canio in his playing days in England know that keeping cool wasn't exactly his strong suit, so perhaps he isn't in the best position to lecture Saka on how he should behave on the pitch.

With the football world divided on whether it was a penalty or not, Arsenal has to move on and focus as the tie is still up for grabs.

Heading to the Allianz Arena next week with it all on the line, the Gunners must have clear heads otherwise their Champions League dream will be over.
