Referee appears gutted at Alexandre Lacazette’s failure to score

Referee Craig Pawson looked gutted that Alexandre Lacazette’s chance to equalise for Arsenal was saved by Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson.

Lacazette surprised everyone on Monday night by giving Arsenal the lead at Anfield in the first half, but it was his miss, that would have given the Gunners a share of the points, that came as even more of a surprise.

The Frenchman beat the offside trap in the second half to find himself one-on-one with Alisson in the Liverpool goal but the Brazilian closed down the shot quickly and it remained 2-1.

Arsenal fans watching at home would have been gutted, maybe as gutted as the referee, who looked pretty disappointed not to see the ball go in the back of the net.
