No VAR at Swansea v City. Both the penalty and third goal would have proved goals should not have counted.
VAR at Wolves v United. Red card rescinded to yellow for United. Just seen the tackle and it's a brutal tackle, well worth the red card so cant believe it was overturned.
I still believe that the referee should be the only arbiter of fact on the pitch and the fact it is instantaneous means (hopefully) the "high" standing of the team is irrelevant. In both cases tonight VAR or no VAR worked in favour of the "top" teams.
How can you have two quarter finals, one with VAR and one without? Unbelievable. Kick it into touch and go back to the good old referee, or..referee the game from the stands with a TV screen. Phew...feel better now.
...but has our defence tightened up since McG decided to return Eastman to his rightful place in the centre of defence? Hopefully we will find his name on the teamsheet this evening but nothing is ever certain with our method of team selection.
Eastman in the team...good omen.
