One of the many, many referee decisions that irked Arsene Wenger recently was a penalty awarded to Eden Hazard during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea. Hazard's foot was kicked by Hector Bellerin and after a penalty was awarded he rose to slot the ball past Petr Cech.

Tonight the team's meet again in the League Cup semi-final first leg and VAR denied Arsenal a penalty early in the first-half. It came after Victor Moses' boot caught Maitland-Niles which resulted in some half-hearted appeals for a penalty.

The decision proved controversial on Twitter, with Arsenal's official Twitter account even questioning whether the decision was correct.

On the plus side for the Gunners, the player at centre of the controversy, Maitland-Niles has gone on to have a stormer and engaging in a terrific battle with Moses down the left side.
