VAR company apologises for error in EPL clash

VAR company apologises for error in EPL clash”

Tottenham narrowly avoided an embarrassing home defeat to bottom club Watford on Saturday as Chelsea and Leicester managed wins in their respective fixtures.

"I'm very disappointed. I'm a big fan of VAR but it has to be used more wisely than that", Dyche said.

The pressure is still mounted on Mauricio Pochettino, whose struggling to make the Lily Whites dominate games like they did last season.

The late drama saved Spurs from a third straight defeat after humiliating heavy losses to Bayern Munich and Brighton before the worldwide window.

Sanchez Flores was also asked about Deulofeu's appeal for a penalty.

A first-half goal from Brazil forward Bernard and a late second from substitute Gylfi Sigurdsson gave Everton the three points in a match in which they had 19 shots.

But once again the Argentine again failed to rouse a response from his side as doubts over his ability to turn the tide in his sixth season in charge grow.

Tottenham Hotspur also recently announced that they would be the focus of Amazon's next "All or Nothing" docuseries, which was made for Premier League champions Manchester City recently.

However, Pochettino believes his side have taken the first step in restoring their confidence after the 7-2 mauling by Bayern earlier this month.

"After Bayern our confidence was on the floor".

"We started the second half really well and Sonny provided good energy and the team was fighting and never gave up". In this type of situation the most important thing is the character you need to show.

"That is the structure of the club that is working and thinking and they need to be ready if we need to do something, if not we keep going, but I am happy with the squad, I am happy with the players.", he added.

Daryl Janmaat got in behind Danny Rose and crossed for Doucoure to apply the finish.

Indeed the hosts were fortunate to be just 1-0 down at half-time as Vertonghen somehow escaped conceding a penalty for bringing down Deulofeu despite a VAR review.

His powerful drive from a narrow angle was tipped onto the bar by Foster on 50 minutes.

But Alli scored his first goal for Spurs since January, capitalizing on a goalkeeping mistake by Ben Foster.

There was huge confusion in the stadium, though, as VAR checked for a possible handball by Alli, and the big screens then flashed a message that the goal had been disallowed.
