Following the decision, fans and pundits alike took to social media to Continue their rage at the VAR system, which has come in for huge criticism this season.

Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker was chief among them, stating on Twitter: ‘What fresh hell is this? ‘, followed by a face palm emoji.**************************

I never, ever thought I’d say this, but I genuinely feel sorry for the referees assistants. They’re pretty darn good at what they do and are being dreadfully undermined. Remember, level is onside.
