This has been quite a disastrous start for Sam Allardyce at West Brom, as his team appears ready to go into halftime with one man and one goal.
Lately we’ve seen a few cases where VAR has really worked to review an incident and make the right decision, and this seems like another good use of the system:
5 ′: Ghazi put Aston Villa 1-0
36 ′: Livermore sent off by West Brom after a VAR review
It’s going from bad to worse for Sam Allardyce’s first game in charge! ? pic.twitter.com/3HDu2wOvQc

It’s a poor challenge that will generally result in a red card so Livermore can’t have complaints, while it also appears West Brom’s discipline issues are still hurting them.
