During Arsenal’s 1-0 victory over Everton on Sunday, the Gunners’ forward Gabriel Martinelli had his first goal of the season controversially disallowed by VAR.
Martinelli finished off Fabio Vieira’s pass in the 20th minute, but his joy was cut short by the match officials.
VAR ruled that Eddie Nketiah was standing in an offside position before he laid the ball off in Vieira’s path.
The ball had found its way into Nketiah’s path having ricocheted, inadvertently, off the shin of Everton striker, Beto, who had been attempting to block a square pass from Gabriel Magalhaes.
According to PGMOL, VAR deemed Beto’s touch had not been deliberate.
This meant that Nketiah, whose trailing leg was marginally beyond the last defender, was in an offside position.
Leandro Trossard eventually grabbed the winner for Arsenal in the second half.
