Aston Villa drew 0-0 at home against Sheffield United in their first game back from the pandemic-caused break in a highly controversial game. The ball had crossed their goal-line at one point, but the ‘hawkeye’ system failed to signal the goal to referee Michael Oliver. At the end of the season, Villa escaped relegation by finishing a single point above Bournemouth, who now feel they might have stayed up themselves if the goal had been given.
The Cherries are now considering taking the issue to court.
