First Arsenal player breaks silence on controversial Newcastle goal

Jorginho, the first Arsenal player to comment on Newcastle’s controversial win, labeled the winning goal as “unacceptable.” Anthony Gordon’s sole goal disrupted Arsenal’s 10-game unbeaten streak in the Premier League.

The goal underwent an extensive review by VAR, lasting four minutes and six seconds, where officials assessed potential scenarios: the ball potentially going out of play, a potential foul on Gabriel during the build-up, and a potential offside by Gordon when scoring.

Following the game, Mikel Arteta expressed his fury, describing the situation as “embarrassing.” He conveyed that his sentiments mirrored the feelings of everyone in the dressing room.
