Video: VAR overturn referee’s Arsenal’s penalty decision

Arsenal thought they had been given a penalty shortly after falling behind to Leicester this afternoon, but VAR moved to show that the initial foul was outside the box, and a free-kick was awarded instead.

The Gunners suffered the early lead after Kieran Tierney failed to retain possession, and his failure left a gap in defence which Youri Tielemens penetrating to run straight in on goal and fire home.

Our team picked themselves up pretty quickly however and look positive despite the setback, but the penalty decision would definitely have been a help.

Will the decision make a difference?
