PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG joined Arsenal fans in their anger after Trent Alexander-Arnold escaped a red card for his a horror tackle on Bukayo Saka.
The studs up challenge was reminiscent of the one that saw VAR dismiss Eddie Nketiah against Leicester just a week earlier.
Gooners were livid at what they deemed a lack of consistency after Alexander-Arnold escaped with just a yellow card.
His challenge in the 48th minute caused plenty of backlash on social media.
Aubameyang led the way, roaring: “WTF didnt Even get the VAR on this one”.
One disgruntled Gooner said: “If there was any consistency in refereeing, that Trent tackle was as much a red as Eddie’s last week.”
Arsenal followers were tipped over the edge by the fact Alexander-Arnold’s tackle was not even reviewed by VAR.
TRENT ALEXANDER-ARNOLD should have been sent off for serious foul play on Bakary Saka.
The Liverpool right-back endangered the safety of the Arsenal teenager when his studs up challenge caught Saka’s shin after he overran the ball.
What was the difference between this tackle and Eddie Ntekiah’s against Leicester last week?
There is no consistency regarding serious foul play challenges.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta will feel aggrieved because he had a great view of this incident and no doubt would have wanted the same punishment for Alexander-Arnold as what Ntekiah received.
Referee Paul Tierney issued a yellow card but it could quite easily have been upgraded to a red.
From the camera angles shown on TV, it did not appear that the VAR official Craig Pawson checked the incident.
