The 14 times PGMOL has been forced to issue a VAR apology including for 'unforgivable' Liverpool error

The 14 times PGMOL has been forced to issue a VAR apology including for 'unforgivable' Liverpool error

PGMOL have dished out plenty of apologies.

The PGMOL was forced to issue an apology to Liverpool after a 'significant human error' from VAR official Darren England cost them a goal against Tottenham - but it isn't the first time the organisation has had to apologise.

The incident saw Luis Diaz's goal ruled out for offside by on-field assistant referee Dan Cook, with England recommending to referee Simon Hooper that he stay with that decision.

However, it emerged after the game that England thought the goal had in fact been given by Cook, with the revelations sparking outrage at Liverpool.

PGMOL had already apologised to the Reds for the error.

There have been 13 other occasions when they have had to apologise to other Premier League clubs for VAR-related reasons since the beginning of the 2022/23 season.

Crystal Palace vs Aston Villa (August 2022)

PGMOL apologised to Crystal Palace after referee Andy Madley changed his decision on a Palace penalty after looking at the monitor, despite a handball from Villa defender Lucas Digne.

Chelsea vs West Ham (September 2022)

Jarrod Bowen saw a late equaliser for West Ham ruled out following a foul on Edouard Mendy, with PGMOL apologising for the foul awarding.

Newcastle vs Crystal Palace (September 2022)

Joe Willock was deemed to have impeded goalkeeper Vicente Guaita, meaning Newcastle's goal - an own goal by Palace defender Tyrick Mitchell - was ruled out. PGMOL subsequently apologised for the decision.

Man Utd vs Arsenal (September 2022)

Gabriel Martinelli saw a goal incorrectly ruled out by VAR after Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard was adjudged to have fouled Christian Eriksen. PGMOL apologised for awarding the foul.

Fulham vs Aston Villa (October 2022)

PGMOL apologised after the referee incorrectly showed Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz a red card for an incident involving Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Nottingham Forest vs Brentford (November 2022)

Brentford were incorrectly awarded a penalty against Nottingham Forest, with it later deemed that goalkeeper Dean Henderson had not fouled Bees attacker Yoann Wissa.

Aston Villa vs Manchester United (November 2022)

Lucas Digne's free kick goal for Aston Villa should have been ruled out, as United's wall was positioned too far back than the requisite 10 yards by the referee.

Brighton vs Liverpool (January 2023)

PGMOL apologised for showing Liverpool's Fabinho a yellow card, rather than a red card, for a high tackle on Brighton's Evan Ferguson.

Crystal Palace vs Brighton (February 2023)

Perhaps VAR's biggest controversy prior to Saturday. VAR official John Brooks ruled out Pervis Estupinan a goal for Brighton for offside, but it later emerged that he had drawn the offside lines next to the wrong player and the goal should have stood.

Arsenal vs Brentford (February 2023)

Ivan Toney's goal for Brentford stood after VAR official Lee Mason missed that Bees midfielder Christian Norgaard was in an offside position. The following week, Mason left his VAR role by mutual consent over the incident.

Everton were incorrectly denied a penalty when a handball by City midfielder Rodri wasn't given.

Tottenham vs Brighton (April 2023)

Brighton were not awarded a penalty against Spurs after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was deemed not to have fouled Kaoru Mitoma, but PGMOL later apologised for the decision.

Man Utd vs Wolves (August 2023)

Wolves were denied a late penalty when United goalkeeper Andre Onana wiped out Sasa Kalajdzic in the box. PGMOL later sent an apology to Gary O'Neil's side.
