Anthony Gordon gave Newcastle the early lead at St. James’ Park, cutting Arsenal’s lead to one. Before determining that the goal could stand, the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) carried out three independent checks.

The first thing to look for was if Gordon had turned the ball into the back of the Gunners’ net before it had left play. The second investigation looked into whether Joelinton might have fouled Gabriel Magalhaes for pushing his arms into the Arsenal defender’s back during a ball challenge.

Whether Gordon was offside when he received the ball and fired past David Raya was the third and last thing to verify.

The goal was awarded by VAR because they could not find any concrete proof that the ball was out of play or that Joelinton had handled it when he challenged Gabriel for a header.

Gary Neville stated during a live commentary, “[Out of play check] Gordon, he’s just come forward. They believe it’s over, but it’s still very, very close. But the objective itself is undeniable.

“Raya messes things up underneath, and although Gabriel may be complaining about being shoved in the back, I don’t see anything wrong with that. [Foul on Gabriel check] I just believe Gabriel leans forward to head the ball and stoops down and misses it, so that’s not a free kick for me from Joelinton.I’m not having that jump at all; it’s a natural one for the ball. [Incorrect check] Would you please let me know when they’re done?
