Tottenham Hotspur had endured a difficult start to the new Premier League campaign.
Firstly, it took a late cameo from Christian Eriksen to help Spurs to finally overcome Aston Villa in the opening match and it was followed up with a late VAR decision at Manchester City to salvage a point.
Tottenham were on the receiving end of a VAR decision yesterday when it looked as if they should have been awarded a stonewall penalty against Newcastle United.
With Mauricio Pochettino’s side already chasing the match after going behind to the Magpies, Harry Kane was brought down in the penalty area by a falling Jamaal Lascelles.
The Spurs players and home supporters claimed for the penalty but referee Mike Dean waved away the appeal.
The decision eventually went to the Video Assistant Referee Anthony Taylor, who baffled the North London faithful by refusing to overrule Dean’s original decision.
Former Spurs midfielder Micky Hazard was not impressed with the decision which proved to be costly.
That has to be the worst VAR decision ever, who is making thes decisions, a pen 100 times out of 100
