VAR raised its head and controversially denied the Clarets a point at the King Power Stadium.

 Burnley boss Sean Dyche is a big advocate of the television review system but even his faith must have been tested by the verdict that cost the Clarets a late equaliser.

 Leicester defender Jonny Evans got the final touch to bundle the ball into his own net after Kasper Schmeichel had saved from Chris Wood.

 But after the ‘goal’ was automatically checked, Jon Moss was told by video assistant referee Andy Madley that he had seen a clip on Evans’ heels by Wood and the effort was disallowed.
 
 With Evans seemingly having no chance of keeping the ball out of the net as he belatedly went to ground it looked an incredibly harsh interpretation and resulted in a second away defeat of the campaign for the Clarets, who had led through Wood’s fourth goal of the season.

 Jamie Vardy’s equaliser and then a second-half strike from Youri Tielemans ultimately decided the outcome as Burnley’s four-game unbeaten run came to a frustrating end.

 But VAR remained the major talking point as the clear and obvious seemed anything but in football’s brave new world.

 Almost a year on from the accident that claimed the lives of former Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and four others, the Clarets were again part of another poignant afternoon.

 To mark the anniversary of the Foxes’ loss which had preceded Burnley’s last visit here, a minute’s silence acted as a tribute to the chairman who helped deliver the Premier League title in 2016.

Seems the officials in front of the monitors are more inept but with greater power than those on the pitch.................who are the faceless ones? As for the goal being ruled out you would have to say VAR is becoming a nonsense. The 4th official and goal line technology was more than far enough imo.
