How VAR error cause Liverpool as Gabriel Martinelli’s goal for Arsenal against Liverpool could have been offside
After defeating Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool 3-2 on Sunday, Arsenal reclaimed first place in the Premier League.
Since the era of former manager Arsene Wenger, the Gunners, managed by Spaniard Mikel Arteta, have had their best start to a season.
Fans will be incredibly thrilled at the prospect of the Londoners carrying over their strong early form into the competition’s later stages as they look to challenge Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
Liverpool, which is experiencing one of their worst starts in recent years, may feel aggrieved.
According to recent sources, one of Arsenal’s goals may have been disallowed if it weren’t for a VAR error.
According to ESPN, Bukayo Saka may have been offside during the buildup to Gabriel Martinelli’s first goal in the first minute.
However, the referees in charge of the VAR were unable to verify the Englishman’s exact position due to a lack of coverage from technology supplier Hawk-Eye.
Fortunately for the Gunners, their number seven, who received the ball from teammate Ben White, was out of shot in all five of Hawk-cameras Eyes that were set up around the field.
Saka is positioned in line with Liverpool’s final defender in the tactical camera, which is situated about the halfway line and is not used for offside determinations.
However, because of the tactical camera’s long-range positioning, it is difficult to tell if the young winger’s leg was ahead of the line or not.
