Arsenal and Crystal Palace drew 2-2.
Arsenal had a late winner ruled out by VAR against Crystal Palace and had to settle for a point.
It was a frustrating result for the Gunners after they gave up a 2-0 lead.
Sokratis’ winner was denied due to a supposed foul by Arsenal’s Calum Chambers in the build up.
Match of the Day host Gary Lineker posted on Twitter to criticise the decision to rule out Arsenal’s goal.
Goodness me, how have VAR disallowed that @Arsenal goal? That is not what it should be for. Ever.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) October 27, 2019
Lineker’s message drew a response from Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish.
Parish felt that the VAR decision was correct, which led to Lineker suggesting his view was biased.
Great result mate, but that is never in a month of Sundays a clear and obvious error. https://t.co/4t0wPqHSwU— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) October 27, 2019
I know you’re not the slightest bit biased but really??? https://t.co/MjSRVxvFQZ— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) October 27, 2019
The draw suited Palace far better than it did Arsenal.
The Eagles came back from 2-2 down away from home to earn a point. They would have felt hard done by to concede a late winner.
