Arsenal fumes with the continued officiating incompetency as Kieran Tierney is fouled

Arsenal fraternity is in limbo after the decision by the officiating team; the referees together with VAR, failed to award Burnley's target man Ashley Westwood on what seemed to be a clear red card.

Apparently, Kieran Tierney cleared the ball and latecoming Westwood stepped on his left foot. Why is not that a red card is the question of many Arsenal fans. Apparently, the gunners have been the victim of bad officiating all round with Gabriel Magalhaes, Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey having been booked with red cards in the most questionable situations.

Tierney who played on a back four together with Ben White on the right, with Holding and Gabriel Magalhaes as centre-halfs showed class giving Gabriel Martineli an upper hand in the attack that saw Arsenal dominating the whole game. Despite Arsenal trying in their previous matches ,their continued worst run in January; I believe, has bad officiating taking a slit share in it.

There is so many incidences the Arsenal side has had to catch up on the run for better results to Corp with the officiating incompetency. It is until the attitude changes by the officiating department, "if there is one" that Arsenal will stop pointing fingers to officials after almost every game. What's your take on this article?
