Gary Lineker agrees with Alan Shearer on Gabriel Martinelli VAR call for Arsenal vs Manchester United

Gabriel Martinelli believed he had given Arsenal an early lead at Old Trafford against Manchester United. 

In the eleventh minute, the Brazilian broke through and calmly finished past David de Gea.

However, the goal was disallowed after a VAR review because Christian Eriksen was fouled in the buildup by Martin Odegaard.

Referee Paul Tierney disallowed the goal following a lengthy VAR review and a visit to the screen at the side of the field.

“It was soft no doubt about that,” said Gary Neville on Sky Sports’ Super Sunday coverage.

 “There are complaints, but I thought Eriksen was fairly dispossessed. I don’t think he could see the Man United player that came and got it off him, it’s Odegaard, he just steals it – there’s a little nudge – but it’s something from nothing.

“It might be a foul, it could be that knee that comes across. From the other angle it looked really soft but there is that other angle that came out which I think means it will be disallowed… it’s that knee into the side of Eriksen that’s going to cost Arsenal.”

Gary Lineker was unhappy with the VAR’s intervention after Arsenal attacker Martinelli scored.

He tweeted: “Here we go again. VAR is so tedious.

“It certainly wasn’t clear and obvious (they looked at about 20 replays) and VAR is there for howlers not to re referee the game. It’s so boring.”

Alan Shearer also expressed his viewpoint over the disallowed goal. Shearer unleashed his ire on Match of the Day on Saturday evening after controversial VAR calls dominated the day’s matches.

Shearer posted on Twitter: “What a load of c**p. #var.”
