Tottenham’s emotions went from joy to despair within minutes during their Premier League encounter with Leicester on Saturday.
Spurs were leading 1-0 through Harry Kane’s excellent first-half goal when they thought they’d doubled the lead 20 minutes after the break.
Serge Aurier put the ball in the back of the net, but a lengthy VAR review resulted in the goal being ruled out as Heung-min Son was adjudged to be offside in the build-up.
The offside call was one of the narrowest decisions you will likely ever see, with replays showing Son and Jonny Evans were remarkably close together when the ball was played.
Nonetheless, the goal was ruled out – and Tottenham’s disappointment became despair moments later as Ricardo Pereira fired Leicester level with his first Foxes goal since their Boxing Day defeat of Manchester City.
And their despair is sure to have become anger not much later as James Maddison scored his first Premier League goal of the season to secure Leicester a come-from-behind victory that moved them up to second.
Leicester earlier had a goal disallowed by VAR as Ayoze Perez was correctly called offside shortly before Wilfried Ndidi netted, though Spurs have another reason to feel aggrieved as the technology was not called upon for a possibly penalty appeal.
Jonny Evans appeared to foul Danny Rose in the area but no spot kick was given and VAR was not even used to check the decision.
