Ben White blushes spared as VAR overturns Burnley penalty after his awful backpass to goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale

BEN WHITE was saved by VAR after replays overturned a Burnley penalty that resulted from his woeful backpass.

The Arsenal defender misjudged a pass back to Aaron Ramsdale that was too short for the keeper to gather.

Burnley striker Matej Vydra pounced to run onto the chance and Ramsdale looked to have taken him down in the box.

Ref Anthony Taylor initially blew for a Burnley penalty but was then told by the video assistant referee to go to the screen.

On closer inspection Taylor decided the Clarets man had dived and overturned his decision for a spot kick.

The call saved White’s blushes following his £50million summer arrival from Brighton but Arsenal fans were quick to voice their concerns over his mistake.

Fan ‘Paddygreen26’ wrote on Twitter: “Another brain fart from Ben White” while ‘T_Wayne100’ joked “Ben White defends like Aubameyang.”


User ‘SaidWatz’ said: “For once VAR going Arsenal’s way. Ben White is playing bad.”

Fan ‘MmKizzle’ wrote: “50 million for Ben White? We got robbed, he's giving me (Shkodran) Mustafi flashbacks.”

Other fans were not so quick to judge and backed White to show his quality.

‘Gallant_me’ said: “Ben white is good, but you see that 50m will put pressure on him.”
