VAR Fails Arsenal Again: Checkout This Handball That Should Have Been a Penalty

Arsenal are a man down against Leeds United. Without no doubt, Leeds United deserve the three points in the the match with close to three woodwork and getting near the goal line several times. However, we must commend the goalkeeping skills of Arsenal goalkeeper, Leno, has he made important saves to keep the host out of goal.

In what looks like a chance for Arsenal, the video assistant referee has denied the Gunners a penalty after Aubamenyang shot hits a defender's hand. Recall that the VAR was involved in affirming the sending off of Pepe after he headbutted Leeds defender. The VAR however denied Aubamenyang a penalty some minutes later.

I feel the handball should have been a penalty following all premier league officiating rules but the VAR disagreed with the Gunners leaving them out to dry. The host got more shots but couldn't get to the back of the net making the intense and exciting match a goalless draw.

In case you watch the match, so you think this handball should have been a penalty?
