New footage shows whether Newcastle’s goal v Arsenal was out of play or not

November 5, 2023

Anthony Gordon’s goal for Newcastle against Arsenal was highly controversial!



  • Newcastle United defeated Arsenal in a controversial match, with Anthony Gordon scoring the only goal. Arsenal felt the goal should not have stood.
  • New footage shows that the ball stayed in play, but Andy Gray and Richard Keys believe it was still an unfair goal due to a foul and handball.
  • Arsenal’s unbeaten streak is over, and they are now three points behind Manchester City. Newcastle has moved up to sixth place in the league. Both teams are in Champions League action in midweek.

There was great controversy as Newcastle United defeated Arsenal in their Premier League clash on Saturday evening. The Gunners had a seven-point advantage over the Magpies going into the game at St James’ Park but it was Eddie Howe’s side that emerged victorious.

Anthony Gordon’s goal in the 64th minute proved to be the difference in a hard-fought battle between two of the Premier League’s top side. The ball fell to Gordon inside the box and the 22-year-old made no mistake from close range. Arsenal tried desperately to net an equaliser but they could not find the goal they needed and Newcastle held on for all three points.

New footage emerges after Newcastle’s controversial goal

Arsenal were furious with the officials after Gordon found the back of the net. Their players felt that the ball had gone out of play in the build-up and that it shouldn’t have been allowed to stand. Mikel Arteta was also livid and went on a quite incredible rant after the game, branding the decision to give the goal ’embarrassing’ and a ‘disgrace’.

VAR looked at whether the ball had gone out of play, whether Joelinton committed a foul inside the box and whether Gordon was in an offside position. But, after a lengthy delay, VAR decided not to intervene and a goal was given.

From the replays that were shown, it was unclear whether the ball had gone out of play or not. BeIN Sports have now answered that question with new footage. View their findings below…



So it turns out that the ball stayed in play by the barest of margins. However, regardless of whether the ball went out of play or not, Andy Gray and Richard Keys agreed that it was both a foul on Gabriel and handball by Joelinton and so the goal shouldn’t have stood anyway. Jamie Carragher, meanwhile, didn’t think a foul should have been given.


Speaking on Sky Sports after the game, he said: “The big one is about whether or not the ball went out. I don’t think there’s a foul while the offside is very difficult to see. There’s lots of stills of the ball on the line or people saying on social media that the ball is out, but the camera angle we have here is not conclusive.”I’m glad in some ways it’s still been given. My first thought was that it was offside, mainly because it felt there was only one Arsenal player behind the two Newcastle players. I don’t think it’s a foul.”


What next for Arsenal and Newcastle

Arsenal’s unbeaten streak to start the campaign has now come to an end. They are now three points behind Manchester City and could go five points behind Tottenham Hotspur should they beat Chelsea on Monday evening. Newcastle have moved up to sixth and are now four points behind the Gunners.

Both Arsenal and Newcastle will be in Champions League action in midweek Newcstle travel to Germany to take on Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, with Arsenal welcoming Sevilla to the Emirates Stadium a day later.
