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.

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. 

 

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.
