Tottenham 1-1 Watford: Dele Alli saves Spurs amid VAR confusion
Please let us know if you agree.
From Emlyn Begley
Dele Alli rescued a late point for Tottenham to deny people Watford a primary Premier League win of this year amid video helper (VAR) confusion.
With the hosts desperately seeking a way back Hornets keeper Ben Foster flapped with Alli controlling before turning the ball, in an cross.
The movie referee examined the purpose and determined it was correctly given. The display, however, indicated that the choice has beenno goal. The goal stood.
For large intervals before Allis intervention, it had looked as though Mauricio Pochettinos side were planning to undergo a defeat in six games.
Watford, who dropped Danny Welbeck took the lead if the cross of home Daryl Janmaat swept.
And they had a penalty appeal turned down by referee Chris Kavanagh – and the VAR – if Jan Vertonghen brought Gerard Deulofeu down.
But, despite coming agonisingly close, their wait for a first Premier League win continues and they remain bottom.
Watford will feel hard done by after more VAR controversy.
It looked like they ought to have had a penalty when 1-0 up in the first half since the trailing leg of Vertonghen attracted Deulofeu from the box down.
The VAR decided Spurs escaped rather than awarding a penalty Chris Kavanagh had not made a clear and obvious error. Only onedecision has been affected from the VAR in the Premier League all year – together using reversals to factual events such as offside.
It seemed as if the Hornets was given a late reprieve once the screen statedno intention from Allis equaliser – though Kavanagh made clear the target had burst.
Players arent allowed to touch the ball with their arms – accidentally – under regulations. It was decided, however, the aim should stand with the marginal call deeming that the ball had come the shoulder of Alli off.
More to follow.
