🚨VAR has just ADMITTED that they made a HUGE mistake in the Premier League yesterday

Unbelievably, VAR forgot to draw the lines while checking Brentford’s goal for offside yesterday, costing Arsenal a win.

The Gunners dropped two crucial points in the title race on Saturday when they drew 1-1 with Brentford at home. Mikel Arteta’s side had a battle on their hands but managed to put themselves ahead thanks to a goal from Leandro Trossard in the 66th minute.

Brentford equalised just eight minutes later, with Ivan Toney heading in from close range. The goal was checked and although it looked offside, was allowed to stand.

But it has now been revealed that the VAR official, Lee Mason, forgot to draw the lines and if he had done it would’ve been ruled as offside.

‘Ivan Toney puts the ball in the net and VAR Lee Mason obviously runs through the checks,’ said PGMOL representative Chris Foy.

‘VAR was looking to see if there was an offside and whether Ethan Pinnock had blocked off Gabriel in the build-up. He looked at the possible foul and decided there hadn’t been one and therefore referee Peter Bankes hadn’t made a clear and obvious error.

‘However, in the build-up to the goal, Christian Norgaard — whose cross it is that Toney heads in — is in an offside position.

‘However, the truth is that VAR didn’t fully investigate with the lines. The lines, simply, didn’t go down. And that counts as human error. Had the lines gone down the goal would have been disallowed for offside.’

The PGMOL released a statement early this afternoon revealing that an official contacted Arsenal about the incident and Brighton for another VAR mess-up yesterday.

What an absolute disaster for VAR and in the grand scheme of things, for Arsenal and their title chase.
