Arsenal fans are furious over the VAR mistake which cost them the equalizer against Brentford this weekend.

Arteta’s side lost a crucial point in the title-winning race. Ivan Toney scored the goal from a spot kick after Trossard’s opening strike in the 74th minute. Toney’s goal lead to controversy as Referee Lee Mason forgot to draw the offside lines which would have resulted in the goal being canceled out.

The decision left Arsenal fans fuming as this might cost them the Premier League Title. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was less than impressed with the decision and insisted that the goal should have been ruled out due to offside. Christian Norgaard was clearly in an offside position when he passed the ball to Toney.

Mikel Arteta further stated:-

“I’ve just looked at it back, and it is offside. You cannot block if you are offside, but it’s irrelevant, it’s gone.”

Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) – the official body responsible for the match officials in Premier League which is led by Former Referee Howard Webb have released a statement on Monday. The Statement conveyed apologies to both Arsenal and Brighton. The Seagulls also met with a controversial VAR decision when Pervis Estupinan’s strike was incorrectly rule out.

The statement claimed:-

“PGMOL can confirm its Chief Refereeing Officer Howard Webb has contacted both Arsenal and Brighton to acknowledge and explain the significant errors in the VAR process in their respective Premier League fixtures on Saturday.

“Both incidents, which were due to human error and related to the analysis of offside situations, are being thoroughly review by PGMOL.”


A new angle emerged of the foul committed by William Saliba which led to an equalizer against Brentford.

During the incident, Toney was seen with arms wrap around Saliba’s back which led to the foul. The English scored his 14th goal of the season which insured Arsenal dropped a crucial point.
