Everyone is starting to get pretty fed up of VAR, and it’s excelling again tonight as Christian Benteke was not sent off despite throwing a punch towards the face of an Arsenal player.

Of course that was only every going to lead to one thing, and it’s now 1-1 after the big Belgian striker has equalised:

In fairness to Benteke it’s a nice goal with a great delivery from the free-kick and he makes no mistake with the header, but should he still have been on the pitch in the first place?
