Arsenal 4-3 Leicester: Aaron Ramsey goal should not have counted – Carragher | Football | Sport

In Sport


Pundit and Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher, who was commentating on the game, certainly thinks so. 

Arsenal were trailing 3-2 when Aaron Ramsey’s sublime touch and finish across Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel drew the hosts level. 

However, replays showed in the build-up of the goal that playmaker Mesut Ozil appeared to handle the ball but it was not spotted by referee Mike Dean. 

Substitute Olivier Giroud netted a dramatic winner a few minutes later with a superb header but Carragher does not think the game should have got to that point. 

“You have to look at the 3-3 goal, we said it on commentary,” Carragher said on Sky Sports after the game. 

“Unfortunately we are talking about referees at the start of the season again. 

“You see this ball come over now, you see Mesut Ozil and you see there, blatant handball. 

“You look at the view of the referee, in commentary I gave him the benefit of doubt because I thought he couldn’t see it, but he’s got to get that decision right. 

“That’s where the corner comes from, Danny Simpson comes across puts a challenge in and they get a corner.”

Arsenal‘s next game is next Saturday when they travel to Mark Hughes’s Stoke (5.30pm).
