Former Arsenal forward Ian Wright is disappointed with the referee’s penalty decisions made during the matches of Liverpool and Arsenal. Moreover, VAR is again involved in these decisions. The technology is making headlines since the starting of the season. However, the reason for which it’s making headlines is more negative than the positive. We recently saw Arsenal lose to Newcastle United because of bad decision made by the referee using VAR. The ball was clearly out of play in that match before it went in for a cross resulting in a goal. This type of decision is costing the teams their crucial points. Furthermore, Ian Wright is more angry because Arsenal lost to Crystal Palace. The Gunners deserved a penalty in the second half against the Eagles. However, VAR wasn’t of the same opinion as Arsenal. Because of this, Arsenal have lost the league topper position to Liverpool.

According to hitc, Ian Wright isn’t happy that Arsenal weren’t awarded a penalty after Douglas Luiz fouled Gabriel Jesus. That penalty could’ve drawn the game. But Arsenal lost due to VAR’s intervention. Furthermore, Liverpool had the same fate against Crystal Palace. Jarrel Quansah’s slight tackle on Jean-Philippe Mateta was given as a foul. Result? Crystal Palace scored a goal. Liverpool were on the verge of losing. However, Harvey Elliot won the game for them in the injury time.

Ian Wright is disappointed that VAR decision has cost Arsenal the first place.

Before the match against Aston Villa, Arsenal were the league toppers. However, it wasn’t the same after the match. Ian Wright believes that it was a foul on Gabriel Jesus by Douglas Luiz. Arsenal didn’t got the penalty and they lost. Now they have to work hard in the upcoming matches. They have to get the better of their opponents in the matches to come.
