You cannot give us the two points back, Arteta attacks VAR

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has accused VAR Lee Mason of “not understanding” his job.

Mason allowed Brentford’s late equaliser against the Gunners to stand last Saturday, when it should have been ruled out for offside.

Ivan Toney’s header in the 74th minute earned the Bees a 1-1 draw at the Emirates, despite Christian Norgaard being offside in the build-up.

PGMOL, the referees’ body, has already admitted it was a “human error” as Mason forgot to draw the offside lines.

But Arteta has said the blunder “cost Arsenal two points” in their Premier League title race.

“That wasn’t a human error. That was a big, big, big not conceiving and understanding your job. That’s not acceptable, I’m sorry. And that cost Arsenal two points and that’s not going to be restored.

“So we are going to have to find those two points somewhere else in the league.”
