Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez: We need VAR right now

Dean Once Again Steals The Show During Newcastle Against Wolves

The Magpies looked to have claimed a hard-earned point despite having DeAndre Yedlin sent off just 11 minutes into the second half, but the wing-back headed the visitors to a second straight victory in the fourth minute of added time.

After being fined £60,000 for expressing "confidence" in Andre Marriner before Newcastle's league match against Crystal Palace in September, Benítez struggled for composure after his team's last-gasp 2-1 defeat at St James' Park. Anyone can see that, so we need VAR.

As for the dismissal of Yedlin, Benitez was adamant that Lascelles was in a covering position as his American team mate pulled back Diogo Jota by the shirt.

Perez told NUFC TV: 'I'm still thinking about it - I am trying to get calmer now - but I still can't believe it, can't believe it, can't believe it.

'When you are elbowed in your face, in your nose and while you are bleeding, the referee tells you that the ball hit your face instead of the elbow, it's quite odd.

Perez, who scored Newcastle's equaliser with a glancing header, was also left baffled by Dean ignoring his appeals for a penalty after being left bloodied when he was caught in the face by Boly's arm.

Former Wolves goalkeeper Matt Murray was a guest on Sky Sports and he thought the referee got it totally right on the DeAndre Yedlin sending off. He failed to pick up Jota for the opening goal and was out of sorts throughout, a headed chance in the Wolves box somehow ending up with the ball behind him summing up a dire display. Even bleeding, he was still sure that the ball hit my face.

"There is over half an hour to go and I think Rafa will be disappointed".

"So we lose three points and have to keep fighting in hard circumstances".

'You know how hard it is to achieve back-to-back wins in the Premier League, so I must be happy'.

'The best league in the world - and it really is, it really is with everything around it - but we are still making so many mistakes.

"It's not that I want to complain or anything, but he elbowed me straight in my nose".

"I haven't seen the image yet", he said to Sky Sports when asked about Boly's apparent elbow on Perez. It's 58 I think now and there were two shouts today.

"I know where we are". It's a tough job.

'We just can't wait to be in the next season, VAR, everything is going to be improved and hopefully the lovely game gets even better because this league, it sometimes needs it with the mistakes we are making'. He always gives what he sees.
