Jamie Carragher thought referee Mike Dean missed a blatant handball in the build-up to Arsenal equalising goal against Leicester – is Carra right?
The Gunners had won just one of their last seven opening-day fixtures and looked destined to start another campaign slowly as the 2015/16 champions took the lead twice, only to lose 4-3 at the Emirates Stadium.
Substitute Aaron Ramsey rifled home the key goal to bring Arsenal level before Giroud – introduced alongside the Wales international – headed in an 85th-minute winner to settle a breathless encounter in Arsenal’s favour.
However, replays suggested that Ozil had used his arm in the build-up to Ramsey’s strike.
Carragher said: “Unfortunately, we’re talking about referees again. It’s a blatant handball. I gave Mike Dean the benefit of the doubt in commentary, but he’s got to get the decision right.”
Gary Neville added: “I spoke to Danny Simpson and he said decisions like that always happens here. You just sensed when Arsenal got the third goal, there would be problems for Leicester. I think they lost concentration, they put so much into the game.”
