GETTY IMAGES – GETTY3Maupay started the comebackWhile VAR has been strict awarding penalties so far this season, the apparent ‘stamp’ on Connolly’s toe appeared soft.It denied Everton a comeback of their own after an own-goal from Adam Webster and a strike from Dominic Calvert-Lewin put the Toffees in front following Pascal Gross’ early free-kick.And the Amex wasn’t the only ground to see VAR controversy. Man City’s second goal in their 3-0 victory over Aston Villa earlier today was allowed to stand despite Raheem Sterling interfering with play while seemingly in an offside position.
