Arsenal's Second Goal Against Norwich Was Scored With Two Balls On The Pitch

Arsenal's Second Goal Against Norwich Was Scored With Two Balls On The Pitch

Arsenal's second goal in the 2-2 draw with Norwich City was scored with two balls in the pitch.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang equalised for the second time in the game when he pounced at the far post but at the exact moment the Gabon international smashed home his 12th goal of the campaign, there was a second ball on the pitch.

The ball was thrown on the field of play by Norwich fans, who had initially hesitated in giving the ball back to Mesut Ozil when he was taking a corner.

Premier League rules stipulate that if a second ball appears on the pitch the referee must remove it straight away.

It seems as though match official Paul Tierney did not spot the second ball but the fact no player was directly affected by its presence meant the goal was given and no VAR check was required.

It followed on from first half controversy when Aubameyang saw his penalty saved by Tim Krul, only for the referee to order a retake due to encroaching in the area as he struck it.

Arsenal remain in eighth place in the league as a result of the draw and have no gone eight games without a victory.
