The system was praised after correctly overturning a decision to rule out Kelechi Iheanacho's strike for Leicester in their 2-0 FA Cup win over Fleetwood last month but was called a "shambles" by Match of the Day pundit Alan Shearer for failing to award Chelsea a penalty in their replay with Norwich.

The controversial decisions left Pochettino livid. "I don't know why it was referred (to the VAR) in the first place".

Rochdale showed numerous positive hallmarks of the Spotland draw, although denying Spurs the time and space to hurt them in the final third proved a challenge too far.

The Londoners are [3.60] in the FA Cup victor market - second favourites behind Manchester United.

The opening 45 minutes turned out to be the most weird halves of football we've seen this season.

Non-league sides weren't quite able to step up to the mantle and replicate Lincoln City's heroics of a year ago, but in League Two Newport County, and Rochdale it has found two willing bearers. Clearly he is right after the first game between these two! Dale will be visiting Wembley for the first time since May 2008 when they lost 3-2 to Stockport in the League Two play-off final during Keith Hill's first spell with the club.

Former Premier League referee Mark Halsey believes mistakes were made when Tottenham's "perfectly good goal" against Rochdale was ruled out by the Video Assistant Referee.

"I think today everyone was confused and including the referee". The goal ended his nine-game goalless streak.

Who'll be laying the hosts? .

Tottenham will be in action in the FA Cup and the Spurs look to win some silverware this season. It is well known how good Tottenham are and at home, it seems like they will be even harder to hold out.

We asked your opinions on VAR and you weren't shy about getting in touch. More like, they'll be licking their wounds from Spurs. And then, it's to be fit to play, and then to compete. Will he be able to do it again? I think to lose some fluency is worth it to get more of the decisions right. "But it is true with Harry on the pitch, he is going to struggle to take them".

Son stole the ball from Rochdale to start a break. The possession from Spotland was 35% v 65%, and it will likely change to 20% v 80% for Wednesday. That, more than anything, is what annoyed Danny Rose, and appears to be the biggest hurdle that the technology has to overcome to make it an accepted part of the game in England.

Alderweireld and defensive partner Jan Vertonghen will miss Wednesday night's FA Cup replay against Rochdale, although the latter could shake off an ankle knock in time to face Huddersfield at the weekend.

Atletico are four points behind Barca, who visit Las Palmas on Thursday. His record needs no introduction at 35 goals in 36 games. He'll be fairly prohibitive odds if he starts, so you might want to consider the First Goal Wincast market.
