Due to the fact that Leandro Trossard scored with a header toward the end of the first half, the Gunners believed that they had finally broken the tie. The ball had been blasted into the penalty area of Brentford by Bukayo Saka, where it was found by Gabriel Jesus. However, the Brazilian player managed to tip the ball directly at the goalkeeper, Mark Flekken by mistake.
Although Flekken was able to parry the ball, it was only as far as Trossard, who was able to make a perfect shot from close range. As a result of a review by the video assistant referee, the goal was decided to be offside, which infuriated the Gunners.
With the help of video assistant referee (VAR) techniques, replays showed that Trossard’s toe was a few centimeters ahead of the ball when Jesus headed it in the direction of the goal. This occurred before the Belgian winger scored off the rebound.
As a consequence of this, the Gunners played to a draw going into halftime, despite the fact that the pressure was increasing on them to find another breakthrough in the second half. Morgan, a vocal supporter of Arsenal, couldn’t help but voice his dissatisfaction with the video assistant referee (VAR) on X, which was formerly known as Twitter.
According to Morgan’s writing, “FFS… VAR is once again destroying football.” My abhorrence for it is so great.
Morgan was joined by a number of Arsenal supporters who tweeted, “VAR hates Arsenal” and “VAR wrecking football yet again.” This was despite the fact that many Arsenal supporters were unable to agree with the rules of the game on this particular occasion.
The comments of others included phrases such as “What a joke” and “Var is a liar, please pass it on.”
It was a tense show for the fans in north London, as they were on the verge of giving up in the second half, but Oleksandr Zinchenko made a save on the line to prevent them from giving up. They were, however, saved by a substitute named Kai Havertz in the 89th minute, who headed in yet another magnificent Saka cross to ensure that they would take home all three points (three points).
