Watch VAR overrule Burnley penalty just as Vydra runs up to the ball

Brutal

0-0 between Burnley and Barnsley at half-time, thanks to VAR.

Matej Vydra receives an absolute pearler to play him right onto the penalty spot. Brought down, a penalty is awarded. Then, just as Vydra runs up to hammer the resulting spot kick, referee Simon Hooper gestures the dreaded signal. VAR.

The penalty has been ruled out for offside. Free kick Barnsley. Horror show. Absolute horror show stuff.

This video shows the sentiment of the Burnley fans at Turf Moor.

Sean Dyche was apoplectic. Then riddled with disbelief. In the past he has said he is "a big fan" of VAR. We'll see if that's still the case.

At the close of the half, Barnsley's Cameron McGeehan headed in a nice ball from the left but his goal was also ruled out for offside. No need for VAR this time though. Clear space between him and the back foot.

Nothing like the FA Cup.
