Gabriel wasn’t happy at the time of the incident when he was pulled to the ground by Newcastle’s Dan Burn inside the penalty area & he still clearly wasn’t over after the game considering his reaction on Twitter…

The referee didn’t have a problem blowing his whistle every other time a player went down so it was surprising he didn’t give this challenge a second look, considering how big a moment it was during the game. VAR also chose not to intervene.
The game was live on Sky Sports and all three pundits working on the game thought it should have been a penalty for Mikel Arteta’s side, even Gary Neville!
When Gary Neville says Arsenal should have had a penalty then it must have been pretty clear & obvious.
