Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has insisted he has no complaints about VAR after a controversial decision proved costly in his side's 2-1 defeat to Leicester City on Sunday.
Serge Aurier's second half strike looked to have given Spurs a 2-0 lead, only for the goal to be ruled out after Son Heung-min was deemed to have been offside in the build-up, although replays showed the decision could hardly have been tighter.

Speaking to BBC Sport after the game, Pochettino refused to criticise the call, adding that the nature of VAR means it will also benefit his side at times.
"It [VAR] is completely fair. I am not disappointed with that. I am disappointed we conceded two goals.
"The VAR has to judge offside based on the evidence provided. Once the line is drawn it becomes objective as the player is either onside or offside," a statement read.
"The key thing to note is that the VAR can only use the technology and the information at their disposal."
The result saw Spurs drop to fifth in the league table, with Pochettino's side sitting on eight points after their opening six games. They have won just twice all season, and that poor form carried over to the Champions League as Spurs stumbled to a 2-2 draw with Olympiacos on Wednesday.
