Gabriel Magalhaes hits penalty call in Arsenal’s spirited draw with Newcastle

Eddie Howe’s side became the first English side to prevent the Premier League leaders from scoring, as well as the first to take points from the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium this season in a 0-0 stalemate.

Mikel Arteta, however, has denounced the ‘scandalous’ decisions not to award the home side at least two penalties in a spirited encounter.

Both incidents came in the second half, the first when Gabriel’s shirt appeared to have been pulled by Newcastle defender Dan Burn into the box.

The second came during the dying moments of the game when Granit Xhaka’s cross appeared to hit Jacob Murphy in the arm.

Still, referee Andy Madley dismissed both appeals, prompting wild displays from Arteta on the touchline.

Taking to Twitter after the match, Gabriel posted a clip of the Burn incident along with an emoji suggesting he was shocked the decision hadn’t been given.

Arsenal are back in action at Oxford in the FA Cup third round on Monday ahead of a trip to bitter rivals Tottenham later this month.
