Mikel Arteta hit out at VAR after draw against Sheffield United

After Nicolas Pepe was denied a penalty during Arsenal’s 1-1 draw against Sheffield United, Mikel Arteta was left frustrated by the decision.

Arteta was seeking his second league win as Arsenal manager but was seven minutes short as John Fleck equalized in the 83rd minute as both sides settled for a draw.

Pepe looked to have won a spot-kick midway through the second period when he jinked his way into the box and fell over the outstretched leg of Jack O’Connell.

Speaking in a press conference after the draw against Sheffield, Arteta was furious at VAR, "I think it’s very clear. It was the same as with Chelsea, very clear. I don’t know how many tools do we need?

"A lot of things happen and the challenge is getting bigger and bigger because we are getting a lot of bad surprises every day with some injuries and suspensions.

"But we are up for it whatever we have we have we will try our best every time we get on that pitch and we did that today."
