Gutted Arsenal icon Ian Wright rants about ‘consequences’ of Brentford VAR blunders & says ‘someone’s getting suspended' | The Sun

IAN WRIGHT has revealed his frustration at the Prem's latest round of VAR blunders.

Saturday's action was marred by a series of gaffes – including Brentford's equaliser against Wright's beloved Arsenal.

The Gunners felt that the Bees' equaliser ought to have been disallowed for offside, with the PGMOL since admitting "significant errors".

Elsewhere Brighton saw a goal at rivals Crystal Palace incorrectly chalked off, while Chelsea were denied a stonewall late penalty at West Ham.

After all three games finished 1-1, Wright took to Instagram on Sunday morning to reveal his irritation.

He said: "Yesterday man. I can't believe it… I cannot believe what I saw yesterday.

"What are the consequences for Brighton who are trying to get into Europe?

"What are the consequences for someone like Graham Potter?

"Finally we saw a Chelsea team doing some stuff in the first half an hour and I'm thinking, 'yes, Graham Potter, you're starting to get it'.

"What are the consequences for Arsenal, man? Trying to put a title run together, man, what are the consequences?

"Best league in the world they say, that's what we say, 'oh, best league in the world'.

"Them mistakes. What's going to happen from PGMOL, someone's going to get what?

"We're going to get an apology, they're going to get a suspension… a break disguised as a suspension.

"You can't blame the technology. In two cases they drew the lines in the wrong place! The wrong r******* place!"

On Sunday, the PGMOL released a statement addressing Saturday's blunders.

It read: "PGMOL can confirm its Chief Refereeing Officer Howard Webb has contacted both Arsenal and Brighton and Hove Albion to acknowledge and explain the significant errors in the VAR process in their respective Premier League fixtures on Saturday.

"Both incidents, which were due to human error and related to the analysis of offside situations, are being thoroughly reviewed by PGMOL."
