Mac Allister VAR split
There was heartbreak for Alexis Mac Allister on Sunday afternoon after his goal of the season contender was ruled out following a VAR review.
  • Argentine netted wonderstrike against Leicester
  • VAR review revealed Welbeck was offside
  • Mac Allister made up for it with second-half penalty

WHAT HAPPENED? Mac Allister latched onto a loose ball on the edge of the box following a free kick and unleashed an ludicrously powerful effort into the top corner. Unfortunately, his effort was disallowed following a lengthy VAR review, as Enock Mwepu was offside in the build-up.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Brighton softened the blow of having Mac Allister's screamer ruled out by romping to a 5-2 victory. The Argentine even managed to get on the scoresheet twice, first converting from the penalty spot after Leandro Trossard was brought down and then curling in a sumptuous free kick.

WHAT NEXT FOR BRIGHTON: That win moves the Seagulls up to fourth in the Premier League table, and they are next in action away at Bournemouth on Saturday.
