Tottenham vs Newcastle: VAR denies Mourinho three points

Tottenham was on Sunday a chance to walk away with three points when Newcastle was awarded a late penalty in the extra time.

The visitors had the best chances to make it count but it was Lucas Moura’s first half goal that stood throughout the match.

Callum Wilson converted the last minute penalty following a handball decision to teh anger of coach Jose Mourinho who walked away from the field.

Harry Kane provided Lucas a superb assist when his low cross went straight to the legs pf the Brazilian who made no mistake infront of goal.

Tottenham was however denied 11 times when Darlow stood up against all attacks in spectacular way.

Newcastle attacked less as they stayed put until when they were awarded a last minute penalty to force a draw.

The match was one that saw complains raise over the implementation of VAR with pundits claiming it is running the Premier League.

Similar moments have been experienced in the Manchester United match when they were awarded a last minute penalty to see off Brighton.
