Newcastle secured three vital points at Bramall Lane after beating Sheffield United 2-0, and the Premier League clash had another contentious VAR call.

Allan Saint-Maximin put the visitors ahead early on, before Shelvey doubled his side's advantage in the second half after cleverly playing to the whistle.

A long pass was played into Andy Carroll who flicked the ball on to the path of Shelvey. The linesman called offside with the Sheffield United players coming to a stop. But the Newcastle midfielder continued his run and slotted past Dean Henderson.

VAR then overturned the wrong offside call and allowed the goal to stand.
