Arsenal and Leeds SUSPENDED with players sent back to dressing rooms after power outage and technical problems

ARSENAL’s trip to Leeds has been bizarrely put on hold due to a POWER LOSS.

The game at Elland Road started on time but was stopped just seconds later by the man in the middle, Chris Kavanagh.

He went over to speak to managers Mikel Arteta and Jesse Marsch as they tried to fix the problem.

But after a 10-minute delay, Kavanagh sent the players THE BACK down the tunnel and into the dressing rooms.

Then followed an official announcement that the game had been temporarily suspended.

The game was suspended after Kavanagh lost contact with his VAR team, although the big screens at Elland Road were still working.

There were loud boos from all four corners of the stadium as the players were taken off the field.

And Leeds gaffer Marsch seemed to be gesturing that the game should just go on.

Referee Kavanagh then reappeared just over 10 minutes later, ball in hand, seemingly to test goal-line technology.
