Officials confident VAR ruling in Wembley semi-final was right

Harry Kane's penalty in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg followed a VAR ruling that he was onside and had been fouled.

Harry Kane's controversial winner in Tottenham's Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against Chelsea at Wembley reignited the hot topic of the video assistant referee.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino and Chelsea counterpart Maurizio Sarri were critical of its use after Kane was awarded and then netted a penalty to give the north Londoners a 1-0 lead heading into the second leg.

But Press Association Sport understands the Professional Game Match Officials Limited, the body responsible for match officials in English professional football, are confident the officials made the correct decision.

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is shown a yellow card by referee Michael Oliver during the Carabao Cup, semi final match at Wembley, London.

The drama unfolded just before the half hour when Kane was scythed down by Kepa Arrizabalaga inside the area.

Referee Michael Oliver consulted VAR, which ruled that the England striker was just onside and that he had been fouled.

Kane dispatched the subsequent penalty but the build-up to the spot-kick award was the main talking point.

Chelsea showed a screenshot of their own system, via a different camera angle, which indicated he was offside while Pochettino felt the decision had taken too long.

But it is understood the PGMOL has total faith in the official Hawk-Eye system and that Oliver and his assistants made the right call with the information and technology available.

The VAR system, which has been utilised in some FA Cup and Carabao Cup games this season, is set to launch in the Premier League next season.
