- Arsenal head coach calls decision to allow winner ‘embarrassing’
- Gunners’ 1-0 loss brings unbeaten league record to an end
An incandescent Mikel Arteta labelled Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat at Newcastle “a disgrace” after Anthony Gordon’s winning goal stood despite VAR checks for three possible problems.
It was Arsenal’s first Premier League loss of the season but Arteta had no doubt he and his players were the victims of an outrageous miscarriage of justice. It was ultimately decided that there was no proof that the ball had gone out of play before Joe Willock crossed it, and the ruling was that Joelinton had not committed a foul while challenging Gabriel, and Gordon was judged not to be offside.
