Premier League teams experienced another week of controversy with Video Assistant Referee (VAR) decisions affecting various matches. The review covered major incidents during the matches and explored the VAR process and how it aligns with the Laws of the Game.

Manchester City was left wishing for a different outcome when a potential game-winning goal against Tottenham Hotspur was called back due to a tripping incident. Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion also had penalty decisions under scrutiny, which raises questions about the accuracy of VAR.

During one match, there was an instance where the referee mistakenly called back a play in added time, depriving Jack Grealish of a potential game-winning chance. Despite referee Simon Hooper’s positive track record, this controversy overshadows previous achievements.

In another incident, we saw a penalty awarded after a challenge from James Milner, but questions were raised over whether it was clear and obvious. The review also included another overturned penalty due to an incorrect handball call.

Lastly, there was a potential penalty for Nottingham Forest that wasn’t given, sparking another debate over the context of holding or grappling during set pieces.

The controversy surrounding VAR decisions continues to raise eyebrows, highlighting the need for further consistency and accuracy in officiating Premier League matches.
