Re: After match interviews?

Superficially it may have appeared "we dominated the 2nd half" because Villa were happy to sit on their 2 goal lead and let us have most of the possession while hoping to catch us on the break.

In reality how many saves did the Villa goalkeeper(s) actually have to make during our 'dominant' 2nd half?

If VAR is here to stay then maybe the offside rule needs to be tweaked so if any part of the attackers body is onside when they freeze frame and show the line it's not offside.
