Loads of fans took to Twitter to hammer VAR this evening after Everton were denied a penalty following a handball from Dele Alli in the Toffees’ 1-1 draw with Spurs.
Everton fans will surely feel hard done by today, after their side were refused a spot-kick despite the ball hitting Alli’s hand in the box after the England international went up for a corner with Yerry Mina.

How is this NOT a clear handball??@premierleague, how has VAR decided this was NOT a handball and therefore not a penalty, after over 3 minutes of checking??!! #EVETOT #EvertonFC pic.twitter.com/VSeFxAY9jk

It was a very questionable decision from VAR, one that caused outrage amongst fans during and after the game on Twitter.
Do you think it was a penalty? Let us know down below…
The referee's behind VAR have been absolute disgrace this season.
• This goal by Firmino yesterday was given as offside.
• This handball by Dele Alli wasn't given as a penalty for Everton.
An absolute joke with the way technology is being used. pic.twitter.com/c4ykHZab1c

Christ VAR has got this Everton game all wrong. Blatant handball by Alli that was looked at for 4 minutes and not given as a penalty, then Son sent off for a shocking tackle that was actually made by Aurier. Joke

VAR continues to be an absolute joke. Ball hits Alli's forearm in the box. Hand is an unnatural position. But, no penalty. What a shambolic system!
Guess it's only reserved for Laporte's hand.@premierleague@Everton#EVETOT

#EVETOT So City have a goal ruled out for ball touching Laporte's hand against Spurs, ball hits Alli's hand and no pen for Everton. VAR is a joke
