In the aftermath of today's Premier League match between Manchester United and Arsenal at Old Trafford, there was a contentious judgment made by the video assistant referee that needed to be reviewed. The issue wasn't one we'd seen a lot of in recent years.
In the opening minutes of the first half, Arsenal's Emile Smith-Rowe scored a goal after a corner kick was delivered to him by the opposition. After his teammate Fred accidentally trod on David de Gea as they attempted to defend a corner kick, the goalkeeper was taken to the ground and hurt. Emile Smith-Rowe was still in possession of the ball in the net, and David de Gea was completely oblivious of what was going on. When Emile Smith-Rowe fired the shot, it was evident that he was not looking.
In this case, the goal was awarded when the video assistant referee interfered. Arsenal was awarded a goal when VAR intervened. Initially, the referee refused to award the goal, but after VAR interfered, he was obliged to award the goal. Before David de Gea was discovered lying on the pitch, the referee had sounded the whistle for Emile Smith-goal Rowe's in the first half. In part, this was due to the fact that the referee had blown the whistle when Emile Smith-Rowe struck the ball into an open net, which led to the goal being awarded by VAR.
The players from Manchester United were clearly dissatisfied with the VAR's verdict. If David De Gea had been on his feet, he would have been able to get a touch on Emile Smith-shot. Rowe's After a promising start to the game, Manchester United's mood was shattered by their first goal. In these types of instances, the video assistant referee should not be present or involved. The final decision should be made by the referee. After all, we must all agree with the final judgments reached by the authorities.
