Arsenal head coach Unai Emery slammed VAR after the Gunners were beaten 1-0 by Sheffield United in the Premier League on Monday.
Emery was incensed after John Egan’s apparent shirt pull on Sokratis Papastathopoulos was not sent for review by VAR.
“For me it was a clear penalty and I think the VAR is for these situations. The point of it is to review and after decide,” said Emery.
The Blades had not won in the league at home since August 18 and had lost their last three top-flight outings in front of their own fans.
However, Lys Mousset’s first-half goal got the world’s oldest football stadium rocking and, along with some stoic and organised defending, it proved enough for a famous triumph.
It was only Arsenal’s second loss of the season but their troubles on their travels continue – Emery’s team have not won away in the league since the opening day – as the Gunners missed the chance to go third in the table.
Watch Emery share his thoughts on the controversial decision above.
