Ederson's Challenge On Callum Wilson Has Left Fans Wondering Where VAR Was
Ederson clattered into Callum Wilson during Bournemouth v Manchester City and football fans are wondering why the decision didn't go to VAR.
The City keeper came charging out of his area and clattered into Wilson near the touchline, sending the England international off the pitch.
Many of the Bournemouth faithful exploded in protest wanting a red card for the 26 year-old.
Ederson got a yellow for this. Why didn't VAR check this for a potential red card? Absolute shambles. pic.twitter.com/f64ury0mgs

The Brazilian saw himself booked for the challenge.
But the rash, high nature of the challenge left many believing it should've been a red and VAR should have changed it.
I don't want to heart a single city fan complaining about #VAR after that by Ederson :hushed:#BOUMCI

If an outfield player makes that Ederson tackle anywhere on the pitch VAR is looking at a possible red card surely?

VAR is useless if Walker and Ederson are still on the pitch? What a joke #BOUMCI

typical big club bias. How is Ederson not getting sent off especially with VAR available. Makes a mockery of the game.

never want to see a city fan complain about var ever again, ederson should have been off

so Walker and Ederson should both have been sent off but weren't and then Aguero scored? unsurprising

Incidents also occurred earlier in the game with Kyle Walker and Nathan Ake.
The England full-back put in two meaty challenges on the Dutchman in the first ten minutes which many believing both were yellow card offences.
10' Yellow Card for Kyle Walker.
Both challenges on Nathan Ake.#BOUMCI #OptusSport pic.twitter.com/nundcCoJw5

City currently lead 2-1 thanks to Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling.
Substitute Harry Wilson bent a sublime free-kick into the net with his left foot during injury time to give Eddie Howe's side hope for the second half.
As the half ended, the Vitality Stadium faithful were heard chanting negatively about VAR.
