Post match interview and reaction:
Tony Pulis: "I was more concerned about the Arsenal supporters booing (Ryan) Shawcross so I didn't hear the ones on (Aaron) Ramsey. I go to grounds and get abused. It's not just Arsene. If you speak to Sir Alex (Ferguson), he gets absolutely slaughtered at some grounds. Is it acceptable? The powers that be have got to decide that."
Arsene Wenger: "I don't listen to what people chant. I think one day football will have to tackle that. It's easy to sit in the stand and insult people. It's the easiest sport in the world. You can isolate every single face. When I go out on the pitch at the end of the game, and people are angry or hateful, I would like a little picture to send home for them to show their son or daughter, and then come back next week and see if they will do it again, see if they are proud."
