Fulham Denied Equaliser Vs Tottenham Hotspur After Mario Lemina's Handball
Fulham were denied an equaliser vs Tottenham Hotspur after Mario Lemina was judged to have handeled the ball.
The home side thought they'd got a goal through Josh Maja to make it 1-1, but it ended up being ruled out.
A decision was made after a replay showed Davinson Sanchez's attempted clearance struck Lemina on the arm.
However, the on-loan Southampton man didn't make a movement towards the ball and it was down by his side.
Josh Maja thought he had scored his first Fulham goal at Craven Cottage!
But VAR intervened after Mario Lemina had handled the ball :weary:

Lemina couldn't help but laugh as referee David Coote overturned the goal.
Spurs went ahead in the first half after Dele Alli's flick went in off Tosin Adarabioyo.
Fans have reacted to the decision and they think Scott Parker's side have been incredibly hard done by.
Best part is, had Lemina's arm actually been in an unnatural position it wouldn't have been a handball. What ruling are players supposed to adhere to? :joy: The bias within VAR is so much more disgusting than poor refereeing alone.- kimmich only (@yungtitled) March 4, 2021
VAR reaches a new low. Davison Sanchez smashes the ball into the arm of Mario Lemina from yards out. Fulham then score from the same run of play. The goal is disallowed.- LADS Podcast (@LADS_Podcast) March 4, 2021
Think we can all agree that is a very harsh decision? pic.twitter.com/1Yd5lZfYgY
What a joke of a decision to give that a handball and disallow the goal! Where is Lemina supposed to have his arm. If not by his side, Up in the air? This is Ruining football!! #bbcfootball- David Spencer (@davidspencer99) March 4, 2021

The FA need to change their laws because it's a disgrace. What can Lemina do there, if it doesn't hit his arm it hits his hip pic.twitter.com/sEYltokZr0
Victory for Spurs sees them remain in eighth, while Fulham remain in the relegation zone and three points from safety.
