On Saturday, the Emirates Stadium hosted one of the Premier League’s longest-ever VAR reviews.
A goal scored by Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli was disallowed as a result of the lengthy check.
In first-half added time, Arsenal was trailing 1-0 to Brighton at home when Martinelli scored from close range.
Martinelli had originally flicked the ball on from a Bukayo Saka corner, but was he offside when defender Gabriel headed it back to him?
The video assistant referee required three minutes and forty seconds to determine that Martinelli was indeed offside.
Multiple players were in such close proximity that extra angles were required, which took a lengthy time.
It was also quite cramped.
Brighton had taken the lead on 29 minutes through Leandro Brossard.
Enock Mwepu scored a fantastic goal in the second half to double the visitors’ lead.
Martin Odegaard’s deflected shot pulled a goal back for the Gunners late on, but Brighton held on for the three points.
Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat gave Tottenham the upper hand in the race for the top four spots in the Premier League.
