Var Controversy Continues Manchester City 2-2 Tottenham

VAR Controversy Continues | Manchester City 2-2 Tottenham

Manchester City failed to secure 3 points after VAR controversial decision

Manchester City faced Tottenham Hotspurs today, however, it felt like a real deja vu game! Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus scores an absolute screamer in added time putting City ahead 3-2. Manchester City fans are cheering Coys’ fans are crying and then the VAR Gods act again. VAR controversy continues to divide fans and it will not change any time soon.

Gabriel Jesus was denied his amazing goal because of an unintentional handball pass by Laporte. The new FIFA rules do not allow any handball goals. No handball goals, or passes leading to goals and not even a throw-ins? That’s a use of players hands too, right? It was the right decision to deny Gabriel Jesus his goal, as per new rules, however, the VAR Controversial decision does not make the game more enjoyable to watch.

It’s a sad situation for Gabriel Jesus and Manchester City. Jesus even said after the post-game conversation with the referee “VAR is shit!” and nobody can blame him. He is certainly onto something. There are arguments that VAR will change the dynamics of the game but also will change the results significantly.

According to Sports Bible Liverpool would have won the Premier League title in 2018/19 season if the VAR would have been used.

Let’s see how many more games will the VAR technology influence in 2019/20 Premier League Season.

Manchester City 2-2 Tottenham is the final score of the game, whether City fans and players like it or not. Liverpool and Manchester United are the two teams that will gain the most from City dropping points.

Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino is certainly favored by the VAR Gods!

Props to the referee having balls to use VAR in such a crucial time of the game. VAR technology is not leaving any time soon on contrary we shall see much more of VAR controversy!
