Piers Morgan could not hide his anger at the VAR decision to allow what proved to be the winning goal to stand in Newcastle United’s victory over Arsenal.

After Piers Morgan took to social media following Arsenal’s loss to Newcastle United, Jamie Reuben could not resist the chance to retaliate.

The Gunners’ perfect start to the Premier League was ended by Anthony Gordon’s controversial goal in the second half at St. James’ Park.

Once again, Eddie Howe’s team and Mikel Arteta’s squad engaged in a fierce match, with Kai Havertz’s careless challenge of Sean Longstaff inciting tempers just before halftime.

Despite having the majority of the play, Arsenal only put Nick Pope through one test and lost when a triple VAR review determined that Gordon’s goal should not have been chalked off.

In his post-match analysis of the call, Arteta did not hold back, calling it a “disgrace.” Morgan, an Arsenal supporter, naturally agreed, saying that it was “pathetic” for the goal to stand because of three alleged infractions.

“So we all just watched the ball go out of play, then Gabriel get fouled, and then a clear offside,” wrote Morgan on X, the platform that was formerly known as Twitter. Even yet, Newcastle was awarded the goal by VAR. Very pitiful.”

Reuben responded in a way that was obviously satirical, choosing to address all three of Morgan’s and Arsenal’s grievances. He responded, “I think we saw the ball not go out , someone onside and Gabriel going down way to easy but again I would say that.”

The win put Newcastle three points behind Liverpool, who play Luton Town on Sunday afternoon, and placed them sixth in the standings heading into their trip to Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night.

If Tottenham wins against Chelsea on Monday night and continues their recent winning streak, Arsenal will be four points off the top of the table.
