Opinion: This Is One Of The Worst Decisions Made By VAR So Far In The EPL This Season

VAR are yet again doing their possible best to make sure football matches in the Premier League are properly officiated but from the decisions they've made so far in the competition this season especially today, it will definitely not be harsh to say the use of VAR has negatively affected matches in the PL.

In the ongoing fixture in the Premier League between Liverpool & Aston Villa today, the red's were denied a very clear goal as Roberto Firmino's equaliser in the 45+2 minute of the clash didn't count on the basis of Diogo Jota being offside in the build up.

The Brazilian International found the back of the net from close range in the 18 yard box to make it level at 1-1 but after a brief VAR check the goal was disallowed controversially for offside.

In my opinion, the goal should have stood because from the picture above, we can clearly see that Jota was nowhere offside & moreover Matty Cash appeared to have touched the ball before it reached Jota. This is definitely one of the reasons why VAR has continued to have a negative impact in the Premier League since it was introduced.

What's your take on this?, Kindly leave your thoughts in the comment section below.... Thanks.
