FA charges Arsenal for VAR controversies at Leeds United

Although players protests canceled Gabriel's red card in Arsenal's 1-0 victory over Leeds United, the FA charges the club for the behavior of their players during the VAR decision.

Bukayo Saka scored the only goal of the game at Elland Road as the Gunners now sit 4-points clear of Manchester City at top of the Premier League table.

However, the Football Association (FA) charged the Gunners for failing to control their players during a controversial ending that resulted in Gabriel Magalhaes' red card being reversed.

An FA statement released on Thursday read: "Arsenal FC have been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20.1 following their Premier League fixture against Leeds United FC on Sunday 16 October 2022. 

"It's alleged that the club failed to ensure that their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 92nd minute of the fixture.

"Arsenal FC have until Monday 24 October 2022 to provide a response."

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta responded after the game: "I have not seen it, but everyone is saying the decision was clear. 

"Thank God they made the system work, that delay was worth it, because without VAR, I don't know what would have happened!"
