The referee awarded Arsenal a penalty as Bukayo Saka appeared to have been hauled down inside the box, only for VAR to overturn the decision.
Fans were in shock that VAR had even called the referee over to the monitors for this decision, as it looked clear-cut in real time, and even now I’m shocked that the decision was overturned.

I simply do not understand how Saka can fall down as he does unless there is contact, but you knew as soon as the referee was made to visit the pitchside screens, that the decision had been made.
Did VAR get this wrong?
