ARS 1-1 BRE: Worst VAR Decision Today That Cost Arsenal The 3 Points Against Brentford

Brentford came the closest to scoring throughout the first half, despite Arsenal’s aggressive play for the most part. Henry had a great opportunity to score in the fifth minute, but he missed the goal from only six yards away. Then, 20 minutes later, Toney sent a pass to Mbeumo, who hit the crossbar with a rocket. Despite some great forward play from the Gunners, who are finding it difficult to get through Brentford’s low block, the first period ended without a goal.

However, in the second half, Arsenal came back stronger after Arteta made some changes by removing Martinelli to bring in Trossard. It worked, and Trossard scored to give the league leaders the lead.

 

 

Ivan Toney equalized for Brentford from a Norgaard assist, but Norgaard was in an offside position when he received the ball from Ethan Pinnock. But after a VAR check, the goal was wrongfully allowed to stand. This cost Arsenal dearly, who are now six points ahead of Man City, who play on Sunday against Aston Villa.
