PGMOL have released the VAR footage of Anthony Gordon’s controversial goal for Newcastle United against Arsenal at St James Park’ last month.

The on field decision was goal and VAR chose not to intervene despite four controversial moments in the build-up before the ball hit the back of the net.

There was the argument that the ball went out of play before Joe Willock crossed the ball, the foul on Gabriel by Joelinton, the handball by Joelinton and whether Gordon was in an offside position before scoring.

See the new VAR footage in the video below:

Mikel Arteta’s comments after the game:

Mikel Arteta on Newcastle’s goal: “We have to talk about the result because you have to talk about how they help these goals stand up, and it’s incredible. I feel embarrassed. But I have to be the one now coming here to try to defend the club and please ask for help because it’s an absolute disgrace that this goal is allowed, it’s an absolute disgrace.

Because it’s not a goal, for many reasons it’s not a goal, for more than one reason at least it’s not a goal. And there’s too much at stake here, we put in so much effort, and it’s so difficult to compete at this level. And it’s an absolute disgrace. Again, I feel embarrassed, I’ve be more than 20 years in this country, and this is nowhere near the level to describe this as the best league in the world. I am sorry.”

Mikel Arteta on the fact the goal was checked for three potential infringements: “That makes it even worse, makes it look even worse, it makes it even worse. You just need to see one image, that’s what you need, and you have any doubt you look at the second one.

And if this is a goal, okay, that’s fine. I don’t care honestly, I don’t care what they say. It’s the outcome. It’s too late, whatever they say is too late. I don’t want to be in the hands of people. I feel sick. That’s how I feel. I feel sick to be part of this.”
