Arsenal News: Mikel Arteta Criticizes Lack of Consistency of VAR

Arsenal news: Manager Mikel Arteta has hit out at the lack of consistency of VAR after the Gunners fell to a defeat to Man Utd.

Man Utd brought Arsenal’s perfect start to the season to an end at Old Trafford, defeating the visitors 3-1. The result would have perhaps been different had Arsenal not seen a goal ruled out after intervention from VAR.

Arsenal thought they had broken the deadlock when Gabriel Martinelli scored in the 11th minute of the match. But VAR advised referee Paul Tierney look at the replay for a possible foul.

Tierney then ruled out the goal after looking at the incident in the pitchside monitor. The goal was disallowed after Tierney adjudged Martin Odegaard to have fouled Christian Eriksen in the build-up to it.

Speaking after the match, Arteta was critical of the lack of consistency of the VAR.

“Lack of consistency. One is soft and last week they made a foul on Aaron [Ramsdale] but it is soft, it is not a foul,” Arteta said on Sky Sports.

He added: “There is a foul on Bukayo [Saka], it is soft but not a penalty. Today it is a foul. The threshold in the first action, you could see there is no yellow card because they want to keep a threshold in a big game. Really difficult to understand.”

Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford bagged a brace and Antony marked his debut for the club with a goal as Man Utd secured a 3-1 win. It was Bukayo Saka who scored Arsenal’s only goal of the match.

Antony put Man Utd ahead in the 35th minute of the match. The front three combined for the goal, with Jadon Sancho passing to Marcus Rashford who slid in Antony. The Brazilian winger opened his body and bent the ball into the far corner to send Man Utd a goal up.

Saka scored Arsenal’s equalizer in the 60th minute of the match but Man Utd soon retook the lead. Rashford made it 2-1 for Man Utd in the 66th minute, finishing off a move started by Bruno Fernandes.
