EPL: Newcastle United Manager, Eddie Howe speaks on Gordon’s goal against Arsenal

Newcastle United manager, Eddie Howe, has finally given his thoughts over Anthony Gordon’s controversial winner against Arsenal in Saturday’s Premier League tie.

Recall that Newcastle defeated Arsenal 1-0 at home in a Premier League fixture St James’ Park.

Arsenal coach, Mikel Arteta slammed VAR officials for for award a goal to Newcastle when it appeared the ball already went out of touch.

Arteta said the decision to award the goal to Newcastle by VAR officials is a disgrace and an embarrassment.

VAR officials took more than four minutes to make the decision, running checks on three possible offences.

Those included if Newcastle winger Gordon was offside, if the ball had gone out of play during the build-up to Gordon’s goal and if Arsenal defender Gabriel Magalhaes was fouled by Joelinton.

Asked for his thoughts on Newcastle’s goal, Howe told Sky Sports after the game: “We are in the dark, we are stood by the side of the pitch seeing VAR on the screen but with no pictures.

“I have not seen anything other than what I saw at the time. It looked a good goal to me.”
