Why VAR Should Apologize To Arsenal After Failing To Award Them A Penalty Against United (Opinion)

In week 14, the video assistant referee made a contentious judgment against Arsenal, which had an impact on their performance. After Tomiyasu was fouled inside the penalty box, the technology should have benefited Arsenal by giving a penalty.

The gunners gained an early lead in the thirteenth minute of the game thanks to a powerful shot from Emile Smith Rowe, but their poor defence was the reason Bruno Fernandes equalized for the red devils before halftime.

After the first half break, Cristiano Ronaldo scored on a low cross from Marcus Rashford, but Martin Odegaard capitalized on Manchester United's weak defending to tie the game under 2 minutes. The Norwegian national team captain fouled Fred, and the video assistant referee awarded the red devils a penalty.

Before directing to the spot for the kick, the center went to the video assistant referee screen to watch a review of what had happened. Martin Odegaard had a delicate contact on Fred, which is why the penalty was so soft.

When Harry Maguire took Tomiyasu down inside the penalty area, Arsenal was denied a clear penalty. The center referee didn't even look at the screen to see what had transpired.

The England FA and the video assistant referee Officials in charge of that match should apologize to the Gunners for making such judgements against them because it was a clear foul.
