Aston Villa Denied Late Equaliser After Another Ridiculous VAR Call

Aston Villa Denied Late Equaliser After Another Ridiculous VAR Call

Aston Villa were denied a stoppage time equaliser against West Ham after an incredibly tight offside call.

After missing a penalty in the 74th minute, striker Ollie Watkins thought he had redeemed himself by stabbing home Matt Targett's cross in the last minute.

But VAR intervened and ruled that the former Brentford man's arm was ever so slightly offside in the build-up. It appeared his arm was outstretched because he was being fouled.

The offside lines were brought in and after a long review, referee Peter Bankes disallowed the goal and West Ham held on for a 2-1 win at the London Stadium.

Fans were once again furious with the way in which the offside law is being interpreted, with this decision one of the very worst in recent times.

West Ham Denied Opener Vs Chelsea After Controversial VAR Call

published at7 months ago

It really was not Watkins' night in East London. His penalty miss, smacked against the crossbar, was the fourth spot-kick he has failed to score out of the six he has taken in his professional career.

West Ham went 1-0 up courtesy of an early header from Angelo Ogbonna, before Jack Grealish equalised with a fine individual goal.

A minute into the second half and the hosts were ahead again after substitute Said Benrahma made an instant impact by crossing for Jarrod Bowen to head home.

The result moves the Hammers up to fifth in the Premier League.
