Peter Crouch has claimed that Leeds United forward Patrick Bamford was “robbed” of a perfectly good goal against Crystal Palace.
The Whites striker thought he had equalised at Selhurst Park, but VAR adjudged him to be offside, despite only his arm having crossed the line.
Bamford did get his goal in the end, but it didn’t affect the game too much with Palace finishing out as 4-1 winners.
Crouch admitted that it was a perfectly good goal scored by Leeds and that Bamford deserved it for his non-stop effort in the final third.
“I hate it,” he said during live BT Sports coverage.
“I feel so passionately about it. He’s pointing to where he wants the ball and what? His armpit is offside? It’s just so frustrating.
“It’s a perfectly good goal, we’ve been robbed of a very good goal.”
Nothing seems to be going for Leeds at this moment in time, and this was exactly the opposite of what they needed.
How many times are we going to sit here and debate this topic between now and the end of the season? Something needs to change.
Bamford controlled the ball and finished expertly, and all of his hard work was taken away from him – despite his legs being more than a yard behind the line.
It was more than a perfectly good goal and nearly everyone who has seen it has said the same – once again, it’s Leeds who suffer.
