The Brazilian found the back of the net inside the first five minutes but his goal was chalked off in a decision that has sparked debate.

The Premier League cannot go one Matchweek without a VAR controversy!

The technology and the officials behind it again came under the spotlight after controversially ruling out an early goal in Tottenham's showdown with Nottingham Forest. And to make things worse — or funnier, depending on which club you support — it came at the expense of Richarlison, a man in desperate need of a goal.

The Brazilian, who grabbed all the headlines following Spurs' UEFA Champions League exit thanks to his foul-mouthed rant about Antonio Conte and the disappointing season, found the back of the net inside the first five minutes.

The former Everton ace, who is yet to score in the Premier League for the North London side, celebrated what he and all the fans thought was his first goal in the English top flight for his new team. Unfortunately, VAR reared its ugly head and the effort was chalked off for offside.

However, once the lines were shown on the big screen, it sparked a debate. Those who were watching weren't sure whether the 25-year-old was off despite witnessing the proof. The decision came down to the tiniest of margins but not everyone agreed with VAR's decision.

Fortunately, this controversy did not come at a huge cost for Spurs as they swiftly marched on to a comfortable two-goal lead. Harry Kane completed a brace in roughly half an hour, with one goal coming courtesy of a penalty won by Richarlison.

Son Heung-min also got on the scoresheet in the second half, with Richarlison assisting the South Korean sensation. Nonetheless, the first-half controversy will only add to the growing frustration with VAR and its implementation.
