VAR controversy as late Murray victor helps Brighton sink Crystal Palace


Substitute Glenn Murray grabbed Brighton and Hove Albion a 2-1 FA Cup third-round victory over rivals Crystal Palace on Monday as video technology made its bow in England.

Neil Swarbrick, a video assistant referee, was assessing footage of the third-round game at a control room in west London as part of global trials of the new technology that will be used for match-changing incidents.

He scored with his knee in the 87th minute but, amid suggestions of handball, there was confusion among players, those present at The Amex Stadium and television viewers over whether VAR had had any influence on the decision. "I suppose they were fuelled by the reactions of the people close to it".

"There was a brief pause and I was of the impression Swarbrick and Marriner were talking".
