VAR denied Southampton an early goal

Southampton thought they had started their FA Cup Quarter-Final match against Bournemouth brilliantly just 10 minutes into the game.

Jan Bednarek’s long ball from inside the Southampton half found team-mate Kyle Walker-Peters’ run inside the Bournemouth box.

The Southampton wing-back squared it across the face of the goal for Che Adams, only to be intercepted and put into the Bournemouth net by Cameron Carter-Vickers.

However, after Southampton celebrations, VAR deemed Walker-Peters to be slightly offside when he received the long-range pass from Bednarek.

After a Southampton throw-in near half-way, the ball found Stuart Armstrong who chested it onwards to Redmond. 

The Saints winger drove forward with the ball at speed, making it all the way into the Bournemouth box. 

Captain Steve Cook couldn’t stop Redmond, who skipped past the defender before firing it into the top left corner from close-range.

His shot pinged against the post, before falling right into the path of Redmond, who had no problem passing the ball into the bottom right corner.
