The company supplying Video Assistant Referee (VAR) technology in the Premier League has apologised following a graphic error during Tottenham's 1-1 draw with Watford.

Soccer Saturday pundit Phil Thompson branded VAR 'shambolic' amid confusion over a late Dele Alli equaliser in Tottenham's 1-1 draw against Watford in the Premier League

Spurs midfielder Dele Alli salvaged a point for Spurs four minutes from time, cancelling out Abdoulaye Doucoure's opener.

However referee Christopher Kavanagh initiated a VAR check for a suspected handball.

Kavanagh signalled for a goal following the review, but an error from the base at Stockley Park triggered a message of 'No Goal' on the big screen.

"Hawk-Eye apologises to Spurs and Watford fans for the confusion caused when an incorrect graphic was sent to the big screen," a company statement read.

"We are working together with PGMOL and the Premier League to understand the root cause of this problem and propose measures to ensure it won't happen again."
