Mark Clattenburg, a former referee, supported the complaints made after Liverpool’s thrilling victory over Nottingham Forest, which was overshadowed by a controversial incident that left Arsenal fans furious.


Arsenal believed they were on the verge of celebrating a victory as the match between Nottingham Forest and Liverpool approached its final moments.


Jurgen Klopp’s team was dangerously close to dropping two crucial points, which Arsenal had recently secured for themselves. However, a refereeing controversy unfolded, leading to Darwin Nunez’s 99th-minute winning goal, crushing the hopes of both Forest and Arsenal and ensuring that Liverpool walked away with all three points.


In order to close the gap to just two points, Arsenal must secure an away victory against Sheffield United on Monday night. This comes after fans expressed their dissatisfaction with referee Paul Tierney’s decision to give possession to the opposing team, despite blowing the whistle when Forest winger Callum Hudson-Odoi had the ball due to Ibrahima Konate’s head injury.


Liverpool, on the other hand, quickly capitalized on the restart and scored a goal within minutes. Forest’s former referee and current officiating analyst, Mark Clattenburg, criticized the decision, supporting the claims made by Arsenal fans.


The incident was also heavily criticized on Match of the Day, with former Forest midfielder Jermaine Jenas calling it a “shocking decision” and Alan Shearer referring to it as a “big clanger.” Despite missing several key players, Liverpool continues to secure victories, unaffected by the controversy.


Looking ahead, City will host Manchester United in the derby, while Arsenal and Liverpool hope for an unlikely scenario where the underdogs can at least secure a draw. It is worth noting that Arsenal has faced its fair share of refereeing controversies this season, including the disallowed goal at Old Trafford and the mistakenly awarded offside goal by Brentford last season.


City will be hosting Manchester United in the upcoming derby, facing off against the Gunners and Liverpool. Fans are hoping for an unexpected turn of events where the underdogs can secure at least a draw.


Arsenal has been dealing with refereeing controversies this season, including incidents like the disallowed goal at Old Trafford and the mistakenly awarded offside goal by Brentford last season.


Mikel Arteta found himself in hot water after comments made following a 1-0 defeat at Newcastle United. Another incident occurred a few months later when Jarrod Bowen from West Ham was believed to have kept the ball in play, despite inconclusive footage. The Gunners also faced a penalty call that was not given against Gabriel Jesus at Aston Villa, and a late handball call against Kai Havertz that ruled out an equalizer.


The strained relationship between Arsenal and officials, along with the perception from supporters, continues to worsen, with the incident at the City Ground only adding fuel to the fire.
