Revs David Luiz and Mikel Arteta as referee have looked at VAR analyst at Arsenal vs Leeds

Arsenal were left angry after being left angry after being denied a penalty following a VAR investigation against Leeds.

The Gunners ran into a 4-0 lead after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s hat-trick at the Emirates – but just after controversy when the score was 1-0.

Bukayo Saka felt fouled by Liam Cooper and referee Stuart Attwell marked the spot.

But he was called to a VAR investigator to investigate his decision and eventually recalled the call.

He felt that the challenge of warranting false positives was not enough, providing an important link for the visitors.

Just before Attwell finished his check, David Luiz was heard shouting at the referee referring to his recent controversial red card in a loss against Wolves.

“Penalty and red card, as at Wolverhampton!” Luiz is reportedly said, although Arteta seemed to be referring to the same incident, saying: “there should be a penalty, a red card”.

Minutes later, Attwell did not issue a penalty or a red card as he believed no offense had been committed.
