Did you forget to draw the line… Looking back at Arsenal’s conceding scene, there are a lot of questions

Arsenal stole points.

Arsenal drew 1-1 with Brentford in the 23rd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Emirates Stadium in London, England at 0:00 am (Korean time) on the 12th. With this, Arsenal maintained its lead with 16 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses (51 points), but failed to win two games in a row.

From the beginning of the first half, Arsenal developed an attack centered around Martin Odegaard. Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli, who received Odegaard’s killer pass, continued to aim for Brentford’s goal. Brentford’s counterattack was also formidable. Brentford also missed a chance to take the lead in the 25th minute when Ivan Tony hit the post. The first half ended 0-0.

Arsenal is the team that broke the balance of zero. Arsenal scored the winning goal by inserting Leandro Trossar in the 17th minute of the second half. The effect of the replacement input was clear. In the 21st minute of the second half, Saka’s cross was pushed in by Trosar to score the opening goal. 메이저사이트

But he couldn’t keep the opening goal. In the 29th minute of the second half, a hassle occurred in the free kick situation. In this situation, Kristian Noegor raised the ball high, and Tony finished it with his head to equalize. Immediately after the goal was scored, the VAR room immediately checked for offside during the scoring process. However, it was judged that offside did not occur and the goal was recognized as it was.

However, VAR was criticized for not operating properly. If you look closely at Brentford’s scoring scene, Matthias Jensen’s cross is sent by Tony from the right to the center. William Saliba kicked it off with his head, but Yoan Weissa returned the ball to the center. Afterwards, Pinnock headed Nögoror’s header again, and Nögoror crossed the ball and Tony finished it.

However, the scene in which Pinnock again header was problematic. This is because the angle of the camera captured on the relay screen makes it seem that Nogorgor’s position is ahead of the Arsenal player when Pinnock is heading. Nørgor was clearly ahead of Ben White. Even compared to Oleksandr Zinchenko, he was elusive.

However, the VAR room did not draw a line on this scene. Britain’s ‘Daily Mail’ had doubts about the scene, saying, “Lee Mason VAR referee forgot to draw the offside line in the process of checking the VAR.”

Chris Foy, CEO of Pro Game Match Officials (PGMOL), also had doubts. “The VAR checked to see if an offside had occurred, if Pinnock had committed a foul. They decided there was no foul, but the VAR didn’t fully understand it. If they had drawn the line, they wouldn’t have conceded a goal for offside,” he said in anger.
