Howard Webb reveals two wrong decisions made in Newcastle’s 1-0 win over Arsenal

 The head of the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL), Howard Webb, has highlighted two wrong decisions that were made as Newcastle claimed a 1-0 win over Arsenal.

According to Webb, both Kai Havertz and Bruno Guimaraes should have been sent off.

The Magpies ended the Gunners’ unbeaten start to the campaign thanks to a controversial Anthony Gordon goal.

The goal sparked outrage from Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and led to Arsenal issuing a statement criticising Premier League referees.

On Tuesday, the VAR audio of that incident was released, with Webb stating that the right decision had been reached to allow the goal.

However, he noted the incidents where Havertz and Guimaraes escaped red cards for dangerous fouls.

In the first-half of the game, Haveryz made a reckless challenge on Sean Longstaff, for which he saw yellow, while the Newcastle midfielder went unpunished for hitting Jorginho on the head.

Webb said on the Match Officials Mic’d Up show: “‘Quite a busy game wasn’t it, a lot happening in this important game.

“A couple of situations that in the cold light of day, analysis that we go through, going forward, we would expect red cards in both of those situations.”
