Tottenham Hotspur: Fans were fuming about prolonged VAR decision from referee

Tottenham’s 1-1 draw with Everton will be remembered for Andre Gomes’ horrific injury, but it was also a game that yet again proved how controversial VAR is.

As per the Guardian’s match report of the game, the game was delayed for three minutes as referee Martin Atkinson consulted with officials at Stockley Park to determine whether or not Dele Alli’s questionable handball in the box in the second half was a penalty for Everton, and after much waiting, the decision was that it wasn’t clear and obvious enough to warrant a spot-kick.

Despite getting away with a penalty, lots of Tottenham supporters on social media were fuming about how long the decision took to make, with fans making the claim that VAR is ruining the Premier League and making it too slow.
