In the 78th minute of this afternoon’s Premier League clash between Arsenal and West Ham, the Gunners took the lead through Alexandre Lacazette.
Talisman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang saw his shot from outside the box blocked and the ball was deflected forward into Mesut Ozil’s path.
The German then headed the ball across goal, leaving Alexandre Lacazette free to slot the ball into the back of the net.
The goal was initially ruled out for offside but VAR overruled the referee’s decision to hand the Gunners a crucial goal.
