Tottenham fans call on club to offer to replay the match with Liverpool after VAR error

Tottenham fans have called on their club to offer to replay their match with Liverpool after a major error by VAR.

Spurs snatched victory in the dying embers of their clash against Liverpool on Sunday, after Joel Matip diverted a cross into the roof of his own net, deep into stoppage time.

However, the win did not come without it's fair share of controversy, as VAR took centre stage once more in the Premier League.

Officials were originally called upon to take a closer look at Curtis Jones' challenge on Yves Bissouma. After a lengthy review, the yellow card originally shown to the Liverpool midfielder was upgraded to a red by Simon Hooper, with plenty of spectators, including Gary Neville on commentary, believing it was the wrong the decision.



VAR then intervened less than 10 minutes later, bizarrely ruling out Luis Diaz's goal for offside without drawing any of the usual lines used in the decision-making process.

The PGMOL later released statement confirming that the decision was incorrect and that the goal should have stood, with officials Darren England and Dan Cook reportedly dropped from their next two fixtures.

Meanwhile, some Tottenham fans have urged Liverpool to appeal and called on their own club to offer a replay of the contest due to the unjust result.


Replying to a Twitter thread explaining the various 'human errors' leading to the decision to disallow Diaz's goal, one user wrote: "Genuinely Liverpool should appeal the result and I would have no qualms as a Tottenham fan if we offered to play the game again.

"It's that bad. I'm angry & my team won. The legitimacy of a football result had been destroyed."

"Agreed mate," another chimed in.

"Not a supporter of either team, but love to see this kind of fairness and sportsmanship," a third added.


"It's a genuine comfort to see common sense prevail, even from rivals," a Liverpool fan replied.
