Fernando Llorente hat-trick sends Tottenham into Cup quarter-finals despite VAR farce independent.co.uk


If there was a defining image of this ridiculous evening, it was the sight of referee Paul Tierney standing still with his left hand raised quizzically to his ear, as the snow fell lightly atop his head. The fifth round of the FA Cup has never seen a match as farcical as this. In the end, Spurs cruised past Rochdale 6-1 to set up a quarter-final against Swansea, but it will be the confusion caused by VAR, rather than the events on the pitch, which will live on in the memory.
