Arsenal, who had been undefeated for 10 consecutive games, suffered their first loss of the season and finished with 7 wins, 3 draws, and 1 loss (24 points), following Manchester City (9 wins, 2 losses, 27 points) and Tottenham (8 wins, 2 draws, 26 points). Maintained 3rd place.
However, Liverpool (7 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss) and Aston Villa (7 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses)
who played 10 games, defeated Luton Town (1 win, 2 draws, 7 losses) and Nottingham Forest
(2 wins, 4 draws, 4 losses) on this night. If they beat Arsenal, they will slip up to 5th place.
On this day, Newcastle saved Joe Willock’s ball from the left corner that seemed to have crossed the goal line and launched the ball in front of the goal
and Gordon kicked the ball that slipped during an aerial duel between Joelin Tong and Arsenal defender Gabrielle.
On this day, Gordon’s goal was recognized as a goal after a VAR review that lasted about 4 minutes.
Regarding whether Willock was out of the goal line before catching the ball, it was judged that the ball was out of line on the side it directly touched
but the round part above it was on the line.
Also, Joelin Tong appeared to be pushing Gabrielle from behind, but the referee did not judge it to be a foul.
The location where Gordon scored was also judged to be onside.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said of the video review (VAR) that decided the game that day, “We had no reason to lose the game.
We lost because of an obvious misjudgment,” he strongly protested
calling it “shameful and disgraceful.”
Arsenal lost that day, leaving Tottenham as the only undefeated team in the EPL.
Until September, Tottenham, Arsenal, and Man City were undefeated and competing for the top spot
but after Manchester City’s undefeated streak was halted by losing to Wolverhampton on September 30 and Arsenal on October 9
Arsenal and Tottenham continued to compete for undefeated status.
Tottenham will challenge Chelsea under former head coach Mauricio Pochettino on the 7th to become undefeated in 11 consecutive games.
If they beat Chelsea, who are in 12th place with 3 wins, 3 draws, and 4 losses
Tottenham will take down Manchester City and return to first place.
If there is a draw, the points will be the same, but the team will remain in second place due to goal difference.
