The PGMOL has admitted a mistake was made by the match officials and VAR when not awarding a penalty to Brighton in Saturday’s Premier League game against Tottenham.
Howard Webb, PGMOL’s chief refereeing officer, has apologized to Brighton and held talks with them about the decision making process in the game.
It is the third apology the club have been given by PGMOL this season for decisions made on the field.
The scores were level at 1-1 when Kaoru Mitoma appeared to be fouled by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the area, with referee Stuart Attwell initially declining to penalize the Tottenham midfielder.
The footage was looked at quickly by VAR Michael Salisbury at Stockley Park, before play resumed with no spot-kick being awarded.
It was one of three strong penalty claims by Brighton – none of which were awarded to the visitors.
Tottenham went on to win the feisty encounter – which saw both Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi and Tottenham interim boss Cristian Stellini sent off – 2-1 to keep themselves within three points of the top four.
Defeat for Brighton saw them drop down to seventh, 10 points off fourth-placed Manchester United.
