(Video) VAR injustice as Stones goes unpunished for penalty box clattering of Schar in 3-3 Man City draw

Posted by

Fabian Schar and Newcastle were the subjects of some considerable misfortune with one refereeing call (or rather, a lack of one) during the pulsating 3-3 draw with Manchester City.

John Stones floored the No.5 with an aerial challenge in the Sky Blues’ penalty box, failing to contact the ball following a threatening overhead pass from Miguel Almirion.

It’s possible VAR merely viewed the event as a minor footballing incident, though it’s difficult to see how a challenge in the box that fails to win the ball is a fair or legal one.

  1. If that happened in the “outfield” area, it would have been a free kick, may even be construed as dangerous play. The ref is too scared to make the correct call bcos it’s in the box – punishable by a penalty. Too many inconsistencies with VAR & refs, sadly.
