How did Jota get a penalty for Dúbravka's challenge, but Awoniyi was denied by VAR?

Awoniyi had not changed the direction of his run or placed his foot into the goalkeeper; Dúbravka's raised arm made contact with the striker when he reached out for the ball as it went past him.

Most perplexing is that Harrington appeared to find the angle which showed clear evidence of the impact of the raised arm, and this should have been given as a spot kick.

The incident came when the score was 2-2, with Newcastle going on to win the game 3-2 thanks to a Bruno Guimarães goal a few minutes later.

The VAR, Tony Harrington, had the perfect replay from which to advise the review. BBCPossible penalty: Handball by Trippier

What happened: Forest pushed forward two minutes into the second half, with Callum Hudson-Odoi closing down Kieran Trippier.

VAR review: Any movement of Trippier's hand is purely natural, there's no swiping motion to suggest he was trying to knock it away from Hudson-Odoi.

And most importantly, Trippier was just outside the area so it wouldn't be a decision for the VAR.

Possible penalty: Delcroix challenge on Jota

What happened: Wataru Endo crossed the ball into the area in the 38th minute, with Jota going to ground under pressure from Hannes Delcroix.

Referee Tim Robinson gave a goal kick with the ball floating out of play, and it's not a situation the VAR, Stuart Attwell, would get involved in.

Possible disallowed goal: Foul by Mac Allister on Ramsey

What happened: Liverpool went 2-1 in front in the 52nd minute when Luis Díaz headed home at the near post from Harvey Elliott's cross.

Just as with the VAR penalty which Arsenal's William Saliba conceded against Chelsea, it might be controversial but there's no doubt that the law intends these to be penalised and, in law, it's a correct VAR intervention.

What happened: Luton Town won a corner in the 49th minute.

The arm being high isn't in itself an automatic handball offence, as we've seen on a number of occasions this season.

The expected position of the arm for a player's movement is a key factor, and this is underlined when there's an aerial duel.

Take the penalty that Bryan Mbeumo conceded against Newcastle in September, given on the pitch and overturned on review.

Violent conduct for deliberately kicking out at another player, or serious foul play for endangering the safety of an opponent for the way Godfrey tried to reach the ball by throwing his leg forward.

Only Godfrey can say if he knew where Ederson was when he thrust his boot, but it would be difficult for the VAR to be certain the Everton player's actions were enough to warrant a red card.

Possible penalty: Handball by Tarkowski

What happened: Manchester City had a corner in the second minute of added time.
