The referee rejected Fulham's goal in the first half after checking the scene with VAR.

midfielder Pierre Emile Hojbjerg believes that more stability is needed in the hand foul reported by the VAR.

The Spurs played against Fulham tonight and managed to win the match with a single goal in the 19th minute. However, the controversial scene of the game belonged to the first half when Mario Lamina's goal was rejected by the referee. The Fulham players objected to the referee's decision, believing that the hand foul should not have been called off because Lemina's hand was tied.

However, according to the rules, if the ball hits the attacking player in any way before entering the goal, hand foul must be declared. Hojbjerg now argued that referees should be more consistent in their decisions with the VAR.

"I haven't seen it. I don't know. My own opinion is that this handball situation is a very difficult one.

"For the players and maybe the referees it is a very difficult one because some are high intensity and not on purpose but they get given.

"As players I think what we wish is some kind of consistency in the reviews with the handball situations but I haven't seen it so I can't say if it was on or not."
