Watford earn late draw with a seeming handball goal

Watford earn late draw with a seeming handball goal

Abdoulaye Doucoure sent the ball into the net with his right hand to score Watford's equalizer in the 90th minute in a 2-2 draw against Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday.

VAR had been given a quiet debut in an FA Cup tie at Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday and a League Cup semi-final between Chelsea and Arsenal on Wednesday but it still resulted in much debate about how effective the trial had been.

Since fighting hard to retain manager Marco Silva's services in November following interest from Everton, Watford has won just two of its 10 Premier League matches, losing seven of them.

"We are very sad but we have to accept the rules. Nothing, only talk about this", said Swansea boss Carlos Carvalhal. I think we have to try the technology because in every single team sport the technology helps us to make better decision and why not football.

Watford had come from two goals down after James Ward-Prowse's double in the first-half but an Andre Gray header and Doucoure's goal, the game ended 2-2.

BBC pundit Martin Keown said Doucoure had "done a Maradona", and even Watford skipper Deeney admitted his side were fortunate.

"They'll feel like it's a loss", he said.

"Obviously we are conscious of this situation but I have got a good feeling because I have got good players". When will VAR be used?

VAR can only be used at Premier League stadiums where there is a direct link back to the Premier League studios west of London - where the official operating the system has access to between 12 and 15 camera angles, including four cameras in each goal.

"My players are conscious we are in a position we have to change, on and off the pitch".
