Already discussed on another thread, but the offside was given against the corner taker after Jota returned the ball to him so didn't receive the ball directly from the corner.
It’s not though. It’s clear from the VAR still that the player who’s foot is “offside” is Jota.

it’s not really about ROI, it’s more about trophy assets for a lot of these owners. It might sound ridiculous to describe Burnley in such terms, but we’re a damn site more attractive as a Premier League club.
