Watford angered by 'subjective' VAR as Alli saves Spurs

Watford angered by 'subjective' VAR as Alli saves Spurs

A first-half goal from Brazil forward Bernard and a late second from substitute Gylfi Sigurdsson gave Everton the three points in a match in which they had 19 shots.

Wolverhampton Wanderers, meanwhile, had two goals disallowed by VAR in the first half as it was held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton at home - although both those decisions appeared correct. We weren't sure why. I tried to make sure I didn't touch it so I could get the strike away.

"We made it hard for ourselves", said Alli.

"We know we want to be challenging in the top four and from a slightly hard start it's a good sign that we are moving in the right direction", Lampard said. It was my first start and great to be back in the team but overall a disappointing result. It's important we turn it around. "There is contact but we're talking about people who have been around the game long enough to know what body language means".

Sky Sports' Soccer Saturday panel summed up the confusion surrounding the decision, with analyst Phil Thompson struggling to offer up his views on the incident that was played out in several chapters.

The Spaniard rued the fact that his side, who remain bottom of the table, could not take all the points after a mature display against last season's Champions League finalists.

When talks of the TV show potentially hampering his sides' progression were issued, Pochettino fought back with, "Do you think it is a moment to talk about that?". I don't say we are going to sign or not sign, we are going to sell or not sell.

The late drama saved Spurs from a third straight defeat after humiliating heavy losses to Bayern Munich and Brighton before the worldwide window.

"That is the structure of the club that is working and thinking and they need to be ready if we need to do something, if not we keep going, but I am happy with the squad, I am happy with the players.", he added. What happened against Brighton when we conceded a goal with the first action and the impact of losing your captain to a big injury, of course, that made it very hard. "But our arrival in the top four must give us the hunger to stay there". "We will try to find a way and we are trying and doing things, trying to be solid to start performing in the way that we all expect that we need to".
