More VAR Controversy As Arsenal Denied 'Stonewall Penalty' Against Sheffield United

More VAR Controversy As Arsenal Denied 'Stonewall Penalty' Against Sheffield United

Controversy in regards to VAR continued at Bramall Lane in the final Premier League fixture of the gameweek as Arsenal were denied a penalty against Sheffield United.

Six minutes, Gunners defender Sokratis had his shirt clearly yanked by John Egan as he tried to attack a corner but Mike Dean elected to not point to the spot.

Even more frustrating for Arsenal fans is the fact that VAR was not consulted whatsoever and play merely continued.

It looked pretty "clear and obvious" - which is what VAR is supposed to be used for and yet the technology just wasn't referred to.

Arsenal ended the first half 1-0 down after Lys Mousset tapped home from close range on the half hour mark. Unai Emery's side then saw Bukayo Saka booked for diving late on in the opening 45 after referee Dean believed he had tried to con him into giving a penalty.
