Widespread Calls For VAR Introduction As Man City Concede Controversial Goal

Widespread Calls For VAR Introduction As Man City Concede Controversial Goal

Wolves took a deserved lead against Manchester City today in their Premier League tie at Molineux Stadium, but the manner of the goal enraged City fans.

After 57 minutes, a superb inswinging cross was met by a diving Willy Boly to flash past Ederson. However, the replay clearly showed the crucial touch came off Boly's right hand.

The incident was so abrupt that neither referee Martin Atkinson or the linesmen spotted it and Manchester City's players did not protest. Yet the replay was conclusive evidence. While it was used to almost widespread success during the World Cup, VAR does not currently exist within the Premier League and this fact frustrated many viewers.

Wolves are looking to continue the remarkable trend of promoted Championship winners beating the Premier League Champions at home - ( Newcastle v Chelsea 17/18, Burnley v Leicester City 16/17.) Aymeric Laporte scored an equaliser for Pep Guardiola's side shortly afterward to bring the sides level.
