VAR denies Everton breathless victory over Manchester United as two goalkeepers’ story ends in a draw


VAR came to the rescue of Manchester United to prevent Everton from scoring a final winner in the 1-1 draw at Goodison Park.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin thought he had snatched the three points at death, before the reruns judged that Gylfi Sigurdsson was interfering with the game from an offside position.

Until then, the game was a story of two goalkeepers, as David de Gea and Jordan Pickford both made costly mistakes before making some great stops to keep things level.

De Gea offered the hosts a goal with his first implication over three minutes, taking too long on the ball before Dominic Calvert-Lewin blocked his attempt at clearance in the net.

And then it was Pickford’s turn to slip when he let out a speculative shot from Bruno Fernandes.


But the two men atoned for their mistakes with sensational stops in the final minutes as the drama unfolded.

Sigurdsson did not actually touch the ball, but he was considered to be within De Gea’s field of vision as Calvert-Lewin’s shot moved into the net during time outs.

Toffees manager Carlo Ancelotti was so exasperated by the decision that he was shown a red card for his full-time reaction.
