Arsenal edged past Leicester in the first half of their Premier League encounter.
It was such a thrilling 45 minutes of football as we witnessed series of dramatic moments. Arteta’s men started the game on a very poor note as Teileman’s grabbed the first goal in 6 minutes.
Arsenal showed great fighting spirit after conceding an early goal. However, the team had to wait till after 35 minutes to score the Equaliser.
With the game looking set to be a draw in the first half, VAR made a crucial decision to turn the game in favour of Arsenal.
The London side was awarded a penalty after Wilfred Ndidi handled the ball in the box.
Initially, the referee didn’t give a penalty as he felt there was no offence by Ndidi. VAR called the play back and reviewed the incidence.
Apparently, Ndidi would have gone away with the handball if there was no VAR in the game. VAR has been criticised in recent times for ruining the beauty of the game.
However, the decision against Arsenal prove to us that the new technology is needed in the game.
It’s a necessary evil and we all need to adjust to it!
