VAR got it wrong as Brighton and Hove Albion drew level with Liverpool in the Premier League over the weekend – a sentence which seemingly splits opinion.
A new video of the incident which led to the home side being gifted a penalty against the champions has emerged online, and there is no denying it was the wrong call.
In the clip below you can see Andy Robertson making a challenge for the ball, slightly clipping Danny Welbeck in the process and both players walking away with no problems.
A moment afterwards, the Brighton man loses his footing and falls to the ground, getting back up immediately and going to move back into his position.
That is to say; Robbo didn’t foul Welbeck, the striker didn’t dive to the ground, the match officials just got it wrong…yet again.
Take a look at the video below:
