Arsenal fans rage at VAR not being used for Brighton’s goal, they think Jakub Kiwior was fouled

Arsenal fans are raging that VAR didn’t intervene for the goal they conceded against Brighton on Sunday.

Julio Enciso opened the scoring six minutes after the break when Pervis Estupinan picked him out inside the box.

The Paraguayan headed home from close range to make it 1-0, but his goal angered Arsenal supporters online.

They believe there was an infringement during the build-up as they reckon Evan Ferguson fouled Jakub Kiwior, who went down before Enciso scored.

Replays showed the striker catching the defender’s heel moments before the ball hit the back of the net.

One Twitter user wrote: “How can that goal stand after what Ferguson did to Kiwior?? Pathetic officiating.”

A second tweeted: “No VAR check for the Ferguson foul on Kiwior in the build up to that goal, of course.”

A third added: “Excuse me but Ferguson stepped on Kiwior.”

A fourth said: “I need to know, why wasn’t it a foul when Ferguson steps on Kiwior in the box?”

Another commented: “VAR needs to look at that. Clearly Ferguson steps on Kiwior!”

Should VAR have disallowed the goal? Let us know what you think.
