There have been some pretty bizarre moments involving VAR this season but this latest one may just top the lot.
Jonjo Shelvey was the beneficiary of the call during Newcastle’s victory over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
The midfielder found himself clean through on goal after getting on the end of Andy Carroll’s flick-on appeared offside.
However, Shelvey decided to carry on and put the ball past Dean Henderson – something that could have earned him a yellow card for time-wasting.
But it turned out to be a moment of genius as Shelvey’s goal ended up being awarded after a VAR review showed he was actually onside.
There’s no question it was the correct decision but Blades boss Chris Wilder will be livid with his defenders, who stopped chasing Shelvey.

This is not the first time Sheffield United have suffered from a VAR decision.
They had a goal disallowed when John Lundstram was ruled offside by a toe’s length when they scored a goal during a draw at Tottenham – a game the Blades were unlucky to not win.
And Shelvey’s goal will be a kick in the teeth for Sheffield United as it effectively ended any hope of them getting back into the game.
Newcastle won the match 2-0 thanks to Shelvey’s bizarre goal as well as a header in the first half from Allan Saint-Maximin.
