Personally I think VAR was spot on there. The ref clearly missed it and had a chance to view it again. The ref himself is at fault for his interpretation. I can see why it was given, but it is extremely harsh.
I think the phrase pile of **** springs to mind lol. Felt pointless. Looking forward to watching it again though. Though I do admit it's going to have be **** good-Peter Capaldi's acting was impeccable.
