To overturn the referee's on-field decision, the impetus on VAR is to provide indisputable evidence of obvious human error, which the phantom Fernando Llorente infraction clearly was not.

It will be a hard decision for Mauricio Pochettino when the time comes and he has a full strength team to pick from, with the quality of his bench much improved. Spurs thought they had scored the opening goal, as Son's driving run into the box ended in a cross-shot Josh Lillis could not hold.

"The first half was a little bit embarrassing for everyone", said Pochettino. "I needed to score and I'm very, very happy to help the team".

VAR has been dogged by controversy in England ever since it was first tested in Brighton's 2-1 FA Cup third round win over Crystal Palace on January 7. One being a stronger starting-XI than in the previous clash, second being the game played at Wembley where Tottenham have been imperious this calendar year, as well as the enormous pressure of playing in the stadium itself, would likely be too much for Rochdale to bear.

"We have to use the scoreboard, to have the referee explaining what decision has been made". Referees can make a mistake.

"I think today everyone was confused and including the referee". We haven't come up with an idea of people inside the stadium knowing what's going on.

"I think we can talk a lot about this".

"I only arrived at Rochdale a few weeks ago and now this massive game has come along and it's great for the club", begins Manchester United fan Delaney. It will not be easy, but Spurs may not get a better chance to win a major trophy.

Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner said the promoted Premier League side learned valuable lessons after their 4-0 hammering by Tottenham Hotspur earlier in the season and are better prepared for Saturday's return fixture at Wembley. "That is my worry".

Order seemed to be restored after the break, though, and the tie was over as a contest within 14 minutes of the restart as Llorente grabbed a ideal left-foot, right-foot, header hat trick.

He was still trying to wrap his head around the decision long after the game had finished, which Spurs eventually won 6-1.

Danny Rose, never one to mince words, was extremely vocal about his displeasure of how the VAR was implemented in the match.

"It was interesting, very frustrating and just confusing more than anything".

'That's just overshadowed a good performance by us and a good performance by Rochdale.

"I am not saying it is good or bad but, if you ask me in Portugal now, I would say it is not a problem any more".

"If you can not shout when you score a goal because you have to wait two minutes, then you might stay at home".

"I honestly have no idea how to improve it but what I experienced tonight was not good at all".
