This has been a pretty disastrous start for Sam Allardyce at West Brom as his team looks set to go into the break down a man and a goal.
We’ve seen a few instances lately where VAR has actually worked to review an incident and come up with the right decision, and this looks like another good use of the system:
5′: El Ghazi puts Aston Villa 1-0 up
36′: Livermore sent off for West Brom after a VAR review
It goes from bad to worse for Sam Allardyce’s first game in charge! ? pic.twitter.com/3HDu2wOvQc

It’s a poor challenge that will usually result in a red card so Livermore can’t have any complaints, while it also looks like West Brom’s discipline problems are still hurting them.
