Saka pleaded for a penalty following his clash with Mings inside the box in the seventh minute.
The England winger held off Boubacar Kamara before coming up against the Aston Villa centre-back.
From there, it looked like Mings threw Saka down to the ground, with the match referee waving away a possible penalty.
VAR checked the appeal, but did not reward a spot kick to the frustration of Saka and the Arsenal fans.
Arsenal fans online reckon they should have been awarded a penalty.
One Twitter user wrote: "Mings literally lifted Saka off the ground and tossed him to the side yet it wasn’t a penalty."
A second joked: "So Mings Rock Bottoms Saka but it's not a penalty? Lol."
A third added: "Mings just committed a WWE move on Saka in the box and no pen, imagine that."
Odegaard gets a yellow for that but Mings got nothing for throwing Saka over?— Martinelli Madness ⚽️ (@cfet13) August 31, 2022
Mings has picked Saka off the ground there you have to give a penalty?!— Lewis (@LGAmbrose) August 31, 2022
How is that not a penalty on Saka? Absolutely stonewall. Mings had his arm wrapped right around Saka’s body and he’s conned the ref by holding his other arm up as if to say “I’m not touching him.” He’s clearly holding him back. Penalty.— GoonerTalk (@GoonerTaIk) August 31, 2022
The decision not to award Arsenal a penalty did not prove crucial as Mikel Arteta's side went onto beat Steven Gerrard's Villa 2-1.
Gabriel Jesus continued his prolific start to the season by opening the scoring, with Gabriel Martinelli bagging his side's eventual winner in the 77th minute.
The Gunners have won all five of their league games as they remain top of the table.
