Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has claimed VAR made the right decision by sending Fabio Vieira off against Burnley.

The Gunners went joint top of the Premier League table following a 3-1 win over the Clarets on Saturday.

Leandro Trossard, William Saliba, and Oleksandr Zinchenko had all scored for the hosts before Vieira was dismissed for a high tackle.

After the game at the Emirates, Arteta said: “With the red card, yes, thank you for asking me; VAR was right. The referee was right; really good decision. Really positive from Mikel to speak about that. Good decision.”

His comments come a week after Arsenal lost 1-0 to Newcastle United, thanks to a controversial Anthony Gordon goal.
