Gabriel Martinelli and Emile Smith-Rowe struck the goals for the Gunners on Wednesday (15 December) but the big controversy of the night came from the decision that led to Lukasz Fabianski saving Alexandre Lacazette’s penalty kick.
“Neil I was thinking of you last night when that penalty decision was given at the Emirates Stadium,” talkSPORT host Alan Brazil said. “I thought ‘oh my god’, if you were David Moyes standing there you would have gone ballistic, wouldn’t you?”
Ex-Crystal Palace manager Warnock replied: “They don’t understand the game, they understand the rules. They make themselves look silly. They don’t want to contradict the referee so they all go along with it. It’s just not right. I just don’t understand why they don’t get people involved that know the game.
“They’ve got to really think about the VAR because it’s not working as it is. I mean, last night, everybody that’s played the game knows that.”
That’s not a view shared by many, particularly from those of an Irons persuasion.
But taskmaster Moyes obviously believes Coufal did not match up to the high standards he has previously set, and has urged more from him.
Moyes will hope at least one or two of them can return for the weekend, otherwise, it could be square pegs in round holes.
