Arsenal Fan's Damning Thread Shows How Many Refereeing Decisions Have Gone Against Them

An Arsenal fan has created a thread showing refereeing decisions that have gone against them since the start of last season.

The Gunners slipped to a 2-1 defeat against Wolves on Tuesday evening and finished the game with nine men.

David Luiz received a red card at the end of the first half after accidentally bringing down Willian Jose in the box.

Referee Craig Pawson quickly sent Luiz off and gave the home side a penalty, with no enforcement of the double jeopardy rule.

@LinkUpArsenal has decided to catalogue every time his team have been "against" Premier League officials.

One challenge sees Bukayo Saka brought down against Leicester City in a similar fashion to Jose by Luiz, with the teenager not receiving a penalty.

Two more decisions came in a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool, the most controversial being Diogo Jota's 'handball' for the Reds' third goal.

The thread ends with a statement which reads: "People are taking this personally as if it's just Arsenal getting hard done by... I'm an Arsenal fan I'm only going to post about Arsenal on here.

"The problem is league-wide if you're a fan of another club please post more inconsistencies. The problem here is the poor officiating."

Manager Mikel Arteta addressed the Luiz decision following the game and was visibly frustrated, admitting the club may follow up with an appeal.

"I've seen the replay 10 times, from five different angles and I cannot see any contact so I would like to see VAR has a different angles," he vented.


"I'm sure they made the decision that they based on that they have seen something but I'm sitting here expecting to see something and I'm not seeing anything.

"I would say yes let's go straight away [an appeal] because I think we've got a big chance. I don't know we have to speak with legal and the club and make the decision that is the best thing to do."

Goalkeeper Bernd Leno was the other player to be given his marching orders after handling the ball outside his area.
