VAR controversy as late Murray victor helps Brighton sink Crystal Palace

Share

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".

"You've got to congratulate the system: when you watch it lots of times like they've been able to do, from different angles, it would have been very harsh (to disallow it)". "The VAR would have pulled me back if it was ..."

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

- Brighton have progressed to the FA Cup Fourth Round in eight of the last nine campaigns.

It appeared that Mariota's back foot was behind the line when he threw it. Lucky for Mariota, the ball was batted down right in front of him.

Palace boss Roy Hodgson - who rested Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke - said: "I would have swapped any result to have Schlupp and Townsend available".

"In the first half we were very good, but they came out strong in the second half, but it took a wonder goal off his weaker foot to get them back to level terms".

Murray's victor on the south coast set up a fourth round meeting a second-tier side Middlesbrough.
