FA Cup: Goal, no goal or penalty – did VAR get it right?

League One side Gillingham produced the biggest shock of the FA Cup so far as they beat Cardiff, but champions Chelsea and 12-time winners Manchester United were among the Premier League sides through to Monday’s fourth round draw.

Elliott List was the hero with an 81st-minute winner as Gillingham, who are 18th in the third tier beat the 2008 finalists.

Alvaro Morata scored twice as Chelsea beat Championship side Nottingham Forest 2-0, but Cesc Fabregas, who is reported to be joining Monaco in the January transfer window, missed a first-half penalty.

A penalty by Juan Mata – awarded after consulting the video assistant referee – and Romelu Lukaku’s third goal in as many games proved enough for United as they beat their Championship opponents 2-0 at Old Trafford.

Nathan Redmond had put Southampton 2-0 up against Derby County, but Frank Lampard’s Championship side fought back with Tom Lawrence scoring the equaliser to earn a replay at St Mary’s.

Everton survived a scare against League Two leaders Lincoln City to win their first FA Cup tie since March 2016, with Ademola Lookman and Bernard giving the Toffees a 2-1 win.

The first goal of the day was scored by Marko Arnautovic against Birmingham City – and it set West Ham on their way to a 2-0 win, with Andy Carroll also on the scoresheet and Samir Nasri making his Hammers debut.

Brighton triumphed in the all-Premier League battle at Bournemouth – two goals in the space of three first-half minutes by Anthony Knockaert and Yves Bissouma setting Chris Hughton’s side up for a 3-1 victory.

League One Barnsley were moments away from a replay at Premier League Burnley – but the hosts were awarded a 90th-minute penalty, allowing Chris Wood to send the Clarets through 1-0.

Earlier in the tie, Burnley had a penalty decision overruled by VAR just as Matej Vydra was about to take the spot-kick.

Elsewhere, Shrewsbury – 16th in League One – took the lead at home to Championship side Stoke through Oliver Norburn’s penalty.

However, 37-year-old Peter Crouch, an FA Cup winner with Liverpool in 2006, earned the Potters a replay with a 78th-minute equaliser – four minutes after coming on as a substitute.

Accrington Stanley, 13th in League one, beat the Championship’s bottom club Ipswich Town thanks to Billy Kee’s 76th-minute winner.
