Arsenal looked sluggish, especially in the second half, with few clear chances other than when it appeared to take the lead within the first few minutes.

VAR robs Gunners of the gate?
The goal was quickly ruled out by the linesman, however, as Granit Xhaka was in an offside position and obstructed the goalkeeper.
A quick VAR review of the side-on angle confirmed the decision on the field – and Arsenal never recovered.
English legends Alan Shearer and Ian Wright were both shocked by the call as they checked the angle behind the gate that VAR failed to check.
“That’s a goal … nobody interferes with Kasper Schmeichel, nobody runs into his eyes …” Wright said.
“He decided to go inside. Who is hindering him? Nobody. He didn’t save. How did VAR not see that? ”
Shearer agreed, saying that Arsenal put the bodies in the box fairly to unsettle Schmeichel, who was not addressing the situation.

“That worked perfectly from Arsenal’s point of view and I don’t think this should be offside as they don’t bother him when he heads the ball and he is certainly not in his line of sight when he heads the ball.” Shearer said.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was furious after the game and said, “I don’t know how the hell it was banned.”
Former Premier League referee and acting expert Dermot Gallagher said the decision was made because Xhaka got too close to Schmeichel before the header.
“The people who make these decisions tell me this because his starting position is so close to him that it affects his ability (to save),” Gallagher said.
The explanation further confused Wright, who said, “He’s the one who actually touches Xhaka. Now he’s completely removed from Xhaka (when the ball heads). ”
“If that’s the case, why didn’t they blow it before?” Asked Shearer. “That makes no sense.”
