VAR Controversy Strikes Again During Sheffield United Vs. Manchester City

VAR Controversy Strikes Again During Sheffield United Vs. Manchester City

VAR was again the talking point during Sheffield United vs. Manchester City as Gabriel Jesus saw his penalty saved by Dean Henderson.

City were awarded a penalty after Riyad Mahrez was brought down in the box, but the visitors failed to score as Henderson brilliantly denied Jesus.

But the Sheffield United keeper was off his line as he stopped Jesus' strike with fans on social media asking why VAR wasn't used to check encroachment.

"How far off his line does he want to be," one social media user wrote.

A second tweeted: "Keeper off his line though?"

A third added: "GK a yard off his goal line. No mention of a VAR review."

City went onto beat United 1-0 thanks to a second half strike from Sergio Aguero.
