The VAR admits an error that took away a victory from Arsenal in the Premier League and brings Manchester City closer

The official association of referees of the Premier League (PGMOL) admitted this Sunday a “human” error by conceding the equalizer to Brentford in their match against Arsenal (1-1).

The VAR referee in that match did not appreciate an offside by Christian Norgaard in the goal scored by Ivan Toney and that was the tie and the third puncture followed by Arsenal, which has a six-point lead with Manchester City.

In addition, the PGMOL confirmed that it has also contacted Brighton & Hove Albion for the disallowed goal against Pervis Etupiñán in their 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace.

The Ecuadorian’s goal was annulled for offside, but the lines were poorly shot and caught the wrong Palace defender.

“Both incidents were due to human error and were related to the analysis of offside situations.. They will be reviewed by the PGMOL,” the agency said in a statement.

Arsenal did not go beyond a draw against Brentford (1-1), he signed his third consecutive puncture in official matches and generated the first doubts of the course at a key moment that could end this week with the loss of leadership.

The point was a scant booty for the Gunners, who still hold a six-point lead over Manchester City. However, Pep Guardiola’s team has a golden opportunity in the coming days to strengthen themselves in the Premier League: if they beat Aston Villa this Sunday and beat Arsenal on Wednesday in a direct duel, they will occupy the first position.

And it is that Mikel Arteta’s team had to face a very complicated duel. He had to overcome a small bump to avoid the first downturn of the course. Calling it a crisis might be excessive, but losing a third consecutive match after an excellent course would at least attract attention.
