Arsenal CONTROVERSY: Did you see what linesman said about Aubameyang? This is WRONG | Football | Sport


The Gunners striker was making his first start Arsenal start against Everton today at the Emirates.

Arsenal have splashed out £56million to lure him to the Emirates and he started in style, netting on his debut.

It was Arsenal’s fourth in a devastating opening 45 minutes as they went into the break 4-0 up.

But the goal is shrouded in controversy as Aubameyang was in an offside position as he raced on to a pass from fellow new boy Henrikh Mkhitaryan before chipping over Jordan Pickford with his left foot.

It appeared most could see it – except assistant Constantine Hatzidakis.

The cameras zoomed in on the official afterwards and TV commentators appeared to make out what he was saying.

BT Sport commentator Ian Darke said: “Con Hatzidakis said ‘well on’ to himself we believe. Someone can lip read. It isn’t me.”

But Hatzidakis was wrong as the Gabon hitman was clearly offside at the time the ball was played.

The decision allowed Aubameyang to become the third player to score on both his Bundesliga and Premier League (since 1992) debuts after Mark Hughes (Bayern, Man Utd) and Gilberto (Hertha, Spurs).

While it was a blunder, in truth, it’s made little difference.

Rampant Arsenal have been too strong for Everton, who put in their worst 45 minutes of the season under Sam Allardyce.

Aaron Ramsey netted twice for the Gunners before Laurent Koscielny headed in a third. Aubameyang, with a little assistance from the assistant, netted number four.
