Opinion: The Player To Blame For Arsenal Goal Against Manchester United

The first fifteen (15) minutes of the match between Manchester United and Arsenal FC at Old Trafford were quite interesting. Manchester United was leading 1-0. When Emile Smith Rowe scored a goal in the thirteenth (13th) minute of the game, the Gunners had taken command of the game and secured a favorable outcome for the club. There's no doubt that the goal scored by the Arsenal FC attacker was one of the most bizarre goals that anyone has ever witnessed in a sporting competition.

However, despite the fact that Arsenal FC goalkeeper Emile Smith Rowe was wounded by one of his teammates, Fred, who trod on his ankle during the match, the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) called on the centre referee to award the goal scored by Emile Smith Rowe to Arsenal FC. Many football fans may be critical of the center referee for awarding the goal, but the reality is that Manchester United captain Harry Maguire should be criticized for scoring the goal in the first place.

When the Red Devils captain attempted to relieve pressure on his team by sending the ball out towards midfield, he should have instead played the ball out of bounds, so drawing the referee's attention to David De Gae's injury on the other side of the football field. Arsenal FC was awarded a goal after the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) made the correct choice to count the goal.

As the club's captain, he is responsible for keeping track of every action that goes place on the football pitch. With Arsenal FC's first goal, Manchester United has conceded nine (9) goals in the Premier League since their last goal at Old Trafford in the season's opening match.
