Was VAR wrong in not sending off Maguire for Batshuayi foul?
VAR continues to do the unthinkable, as it’s now uniting supporters of Spurs and Chelsea.
The latter trailed Manchester United at halftime after Harry Maguire was not disciplined for sticking his foot into the groin of Michy Batshuayi.
The former will join Chelsea in wondering why Maguire wasn’t sent off given it saw forward Heung-min Son sent off for a similar incident against the Blues’ Antonio Rudiger late last year. The punishment was not reversed by supplemental review.

It’s understandable that the referee didn’t see it, but when you consider that VAR had all of the above angles? Well, you understand why some believe in conspiracy theories.
What do you think?
Roy Keane and Jamie Carragher felt Maguire should be counting his blessings, and said so via our partners Sky Sports.
Social media was at-the-ready, too.

No red card for Maguire there purely on the strength of him not being that type of lad.— David Preece (@davidpreece12) February 17, 2020
