VAR was certainly the talking point of the match between Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon.

There were two goals disallowed by VAR in the match, while no other game in the Premier League in 2019-20 has had more than one chalked off.

The Foxes thought they had opened the scoring themselves when Wilfred Ndidi scored on the rebound after Paulo Gazzaniga spilled Youri Tielemans’ shot, but the goal was ruled out for offside by the video assistant referee.

Tottenham will feel hard done by after as Serge Aurier’s goal on 64 minutes was ruled out by VAR which would have doubled their lead, only for Leicester to go up the pitch and level through Ricardo Pereira just a minute later.

Aurier’s effort was harshly ruled off after Heung-min Son was deemed to be marginally offside in the build up to the goal.

After the match, Brendan Rodgers has claimed that the technology is now part of the game and the decisions must be accepted.
