Liverpool’s meeting with Tottenham in the English capital attracted near-universal bafflement from pundits and commentators alike, with many questioning the quality of the officiating calls made.
Jamie Redknapp, in particular, was left scratching his head in a Sky Sports studio as to how VAR had managed to avoid penalising what appeared to be a clear barge on Diogo Jota in the 18-yard box.
The technology did intervene clearly in Andy Robertson’s sending off, angering supporters online with its selective involvement.
It’s a point that’s likely to invite further investigation into the lack of consistency in decisions, with referees evidently not getting as much support as many might have hoped from VAR.
