    VAR did NOT check whether Fabinho had fouled Oli McBurnie for penalty

    REVEALED: VAR did NOT check whether Fabinho had fouled Oli McBurnie for Sheffield United penalty… with officials instead focusing on whether tackle was inside or outside the box 

    • VAR did not check whether Sheffield United’s penalty was actually a foul 

    There was yet more VAR controversy in Liverpool‘s match against Sheffield United on Saturday, with the system giving a penalty without actually checking whether the incident was a foul or not.

    The referee had originally given a free kick just outside the area, which VAR corrected to a penalty based on where the foul happened.

    However the Premier League has confirmed that VAR only checked whether the incident happened inside the box, and not whether it was actually a foul. 

    More to follow.
