Liverpool are among the WORST affected by VAR this season

  Liverpool are among the WORST affected by VAR this season Heading into the international break, in many categories Liverpool have been hardest hit by VAR and in terms of decisions are bottom of the table with minus-four going in their 'favour'.But it appears technology is also hitting the Reds hard as they appear to be suffering the most from VAR calls after the first eight games of the campaign.

With his team top of the English Premier League, Jose Mourinho enjoyed bragging rights over Pep Guardiola in their longstanding rivalry as Tottenham beat Manchester City 2-0 on Saturday.

Chelsea moved up to second while Aston Villa's strong early form continued to fade.

A typical Guardiola vs. Mourinho game saw City enjoy the lion's share of possession, only to be frustrated by Tottenham's compact defense and sliced apart on counter-attacks.

“Everyone worked their socks off,” Tottenham forward Harry Kane told Sky Sports. “We knew in the second half that chances would be available and thankfully we took some in the end.”

Arsenal nearly dropped points but Guenduzi and VAR put in a great shift. Untied Manchester looking like a pair of outworn school shoes, struggling to get going this year and losing to West Ham who are having a pretty good time. (we told you about United time ago, them Man NEED changes!)

Kane has either scored or assisted at least one goal in each of his last eight league games. Mourinho was marking a year in charge at Tottenham, while Guardiola acknowledged he had work to do to turn City's season around after signing a two-year contract extension.

Son Heung-min gave Tottenham the lead in the fifth minute when Kane pulled both City center-backs out of position, leaving the way clear for the South Korean to latch onto Tanguy Ndombele's pass and score. With a one-goal advantage, Tottenham was happy to sit back and deflect City's attacks.

City has yet to score at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in three visits since Spurs moved in last year. Aymeric Laporte briefly thought he had ended that run, but his goal was disallowed because Gabriel Jesus controlled the ball with his arm before passing to Laporte.

City pushed up and left space for Tottenham to counter. Kane had three passing options on a 65th-minute break and he opted for Giovani Lo Celso, who scored with his first action after coming on as a substitute.

Tottenham has 20 points, two more than Chelsea and Leicester. A win over Liverpool on Sunday could put Leicester top, though.

“I prefer to be top of the league than second, third or fourth but it is not an obsession," Mourinho said. “It is not a problem for me if tomorrow Leicester win and go top. I just wanted to win my next game.”

WERNER KEY FOR CHELSEA

Timo Werner missed chances to score for Chelsea, but he still lifted the team to a 2-0 win at Newcastle.

The Germany forward brought the ball out of his own half on a lightning solo counter before laying it off to Tammy Abraham to score the winning goal. It was Abraham's third goal in his last three games for Chelsea.

Chelsea had earlier taken the lead when Newcastle defender Federico Fernandez knocked Mason Mount's cross into his own net. Scoring at the correct end of the field was much tougher for Newcastle, whose first shot on goal didn't come until a deflected shot in the 82nd minute.

Chelsea ends the day second in the Premier League, above Leicester on goal difference.

VILLA LOSES AGAIN

After its high-flying start to the season, Aston Villa looks increasingly earthbound.

Solly March's goal from the edge of the box gave Brighton a 2-1 win at Villa, but it could have finished differently after a contentious stoppage-time incident.

March reached for the ball and caught Mahmoud “Trezeguet” Hassan and the referee gave a penalty, only to reverse his decision after watching the incident again. Video review indicated March played the ball.

Villa has lost three of its last four league games, while Brighton claimed its first win since Sept. 20 and now has a six-point cushion to the relegation zone.

After the defeat of RB Leipzig on the lawn of Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League (1-0), Julian Nagelsmann was particularly annoyed at a press conference. And in particular against refereeing because of the penalty awarded to the Parisians: “Normally, I'm a very calm person after games, but I don't understand how such an error can happen despite the VAR. There is no contact. If VAR is useless, it should be stopped.

VAR HELPS UNITED

Bruno Fernandes scored the only goal of the game as Manchester United beat West Bromwich Albion 1-0 with some help from VAR.

First, a video replay overturned a penalty given against United by showing Fernandes got the ball when challenging an opponent. Then it gave Fernandes two chances at a spot-kick.

Fernandes stepped up to take the penalty after West Brom's Darnell Furlong handballed. The Portugal midfielder's first attempt was saved by West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone, but VAR showed that Johnstone was slightly off his line. That meant a retake and Fernandes duly scored.

Fans were quick to note that controversial referee David Coote was in the thick of the action, just weeks after he was slammed for his display in Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Everton.

I visited airport lounges of the 3 major US airlines and saw how the pandemic has changed the once-extravagant experience – here's what it's like to lounge during the pandemic .
Airlines are adapting their premium lounges to the new realities of pandemic flying as their top travellers remain largely grounded. Each airline has its own approach but all are centered around health and safety first followed by a gradual ramp-up of the amenities that flyers expect. We visited the airport lounges of American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and United Airlines to see how the lounge experience has changed. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Access to airport lounges is a top perk for frequent flyers and those who pay top dollar to sit in the premium cabins of an airliner.
