VAR struck again during Tottenham Hotspur’s boxing day game against Brighton, ruling out a Harry Kane goal for the most absurd reason.

Spurs thought they had opened the scoring in the 24th minute against Brighton, but VAR disallowed Kane’s strike on review. The reason why? The forward’s armpit was in an offside position which prompted VAR to scratch his effort off.

Obviously, this raised a lot of eyebrows around the league.

In the end, Brighton took the lead through Adam Webster who powerfully headed home in the 37th minute. Kane would go to tie the game in the second half before Dele Alli completed the comeback for the Lillywhites.

In the case that the goal was allowed, Kane would have tied the record of the most scores on Boxing Day with his double.
