Arsenal goalkeeper David Raya accidentally hits referee with ball during match

Arsenal continued their impressive form with a dominating display against Newcastle United.

The Gunners won 4-1 at the Emirates, an own goal from Newcastle United defender Sven Botman started it all off.

Havertz, Saka and Jakub Kiwior sealed a huge three points for Arsenal who now sit in 3rd place, a point behind champions Manchester City and two behind Liverpool.

The funniest moment of the match came in the 73rd minute when Arsenal goalkeeper David Raya booted the ball up the field only for it to be stopped in its tracks, by the referee.

Arsenal goalkeeper David Raya was fuming as the referee stopped a potential goal and a beautiful assist.

The Premier League race is going down to the wire and little things like this could make the difference in terms of goals scored.

Luckily, the ball just missed the referees head, it’s a good job it wasn’t Ederson kicking it!
