Opinion: VAR should apologise to Tottenham for disallowing a clear goal from Heung-Min Son

Tottenham was denied a goal in the 75th minutes when Heung-Min Son struck a beauty inside the box that ended at the back of the net.

This is yet another controversial decision from VAR.

Tottenham Hotspur welcomes Southampton as Ryan Mason made his Premier League debut as manager for the club.

With the absence of Harry Kane due to injury, Heung-min Son, Gareth Bale and Lucas were favoured upfront in a 4-2-3-1 pattern.

Tottenham looked shaky in the first half and failed to have any shot at the goal.

In the 30th minutes, Danny Ings scored to put Southampton in the lead.

A delightful corner was swung into the box from James Ward-Prowse with Danny Ings rising highest to head in off the post.

After going a goal behind, Tottenham came back strong for the second half.

In the 60th minutes, Gareth Bale scored a stunning curler.

Lucas attempted shot was deflected into the path of Bale. The winger controlled the ball with his left foot and struck a curler to bring Tottenham level.

Tottenham thought they had the lead in the 75th minutes when Son Heung-Min found the back of the net, but his effort was ruled out for offside, in yet another controversial decision from the VAR.

Here are the views of some fans:

Our verdict on the decision:

Heung-Min Son goal should have stood.

Replays showed that Lucas who was in an offside position NEVER made any contact with the ball after Heung-Min Son struck the ball into the net.

It was a stunning strike and VAR got the call wrong.

There you have it.
