Tottenham Vs Leicester City VAR Controversy: Spurs were disallowed goal by VAR in most atrocious manner, adding up to VAR controversies.
Tottenham Vs Leicester city is full on entertainment and VAR has disallowed 2 goals already, yet the game has seen decent number of goals. However, still VAR has once again managed to be the highlight of this game.
Tottenham were denied a goal in the most atrocious manner, as the North London scored a goal but were denied it due to finest of margins.
In the 63rd minute, Tottenham was supposed to extend the lead after Serge Aurier found the net after lashing a low shot past Kasper Schmeichel to make the win comfortable for Spurs.
However, a lengthy VAR check rules the goal out of the offside as Heung Min Son was found out of the line by finest of the margins, as only his shoulder was making him look at the inappropriate position.

Quite the turn of events in this one. First, Serge Aurier thought he had scored for Spurs but after the VAR was consulted, the goal was disallowed due to a call of Heung-min Son being offside (via @TelemundoSports) pic.twitter.com/AkHfEXQpJE

My word, this VAR offside is INSANELY close 🤯
And Leicester equalised moments after it… 😅

This goal could have made them avoid a loss against the Foxes, as only one goal lead was not good enough to stand against the Brendan Rodgers side.
Ricardo Pereira leveled the score for Leicester City in the 70th minute and with the time ticking away, it seemed it will end in a draw. However, to Tottonham’s horror, Leicester City gained the lead in the 85th minute of the game, after James Maddison made a spectacular strike to make it 2-1.
Tottenham are in a rough phase in the Premier League, as they have failed to be consistent ever since the Premier League has started this season.
Sorry VAR is ruining Football. @SpursOfficial 2nd goal ruled out because Son had a hair offside, give over, Football doesnt need this sort of scrutiny, just for obvious errors to be corrected

To think VAR was introduced to get rid of clear and obvious errors… An offside was just given because Son was 0.000000001mm offside. Yet VAR doesn't overturn obvious penalties because they don't want to undermine refs. How did we get this so wrong… #LEITOT

The very worst of VAR. Absolutely nothing in the Son offside – millimetres maybe, and that's from one angle – but ruled out.

It's disallowed. I have no idea how they've decided that was offside against Son.
