Tony Pulis has disclosed that McAuley told him after the game with Arsenal that his shirt was grabbed by Olivier Giroud in the build-up to the only goal of the match.

The West Bromwich Albion manager was highly disappointed to see his side concede a late goal after putting on maximum efforts from the beginning to that point in the game.

Arsenal, through an Olivier Giroud header from a Mesut Ozil cross were able to escape with all three points on Boxing Day.

Pulis did not also fail to recognise the class of Arsenal while also revealing what his player made him know.

"It is hard to take. The players worked so hard. Arsenal are a good team and had lots of chances but to concede so late is disappointing", Pulis was quoted as saying by the BBC.

"Our supporters have seen the team work so hard to stop one of the best teams in Europe. Of course Ben Foster has made some great saves and we're disappointed not to see the game out."

"Olivier Giroud has just outmuscled Gareth McAuley out of the way, he put his hand across him early and outmuscled him.

"I think if Gareth takes a step forward then he stops Giroud pinning him. Once he pinned him he is so strong and overpowers him."

"Gareth said Giroud has grabbed his shirt before the ball come over – I'm not sure if he did."
