Wenger calls for instant replays
Thierry Henry argues with the referee
Henry had a goal disallowed for handball against CSKA Moscow
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wants video replays to be introduced into the game as soon as possible.

His side were denied an equaliser against CSKA Moscow when Thierry Henry was ruled to have handled the ball.

Wenger told BBC Five Live Sport: "There is a need for video technology because if you love football you want justice to be respected.

"Why refuse when the help is there? It becomes a weakness from the referees if they don't accept it."

He added: "When people see things that don't happen, you can question the honesty of people and you don't want that.

"With the incident on Tuesday, I would have preferred the referee to have said 'video please, I suspect there was a handball'.

"Because when you watch it again it is clear there was no handball and that's very difficult to accept."
