Its influence on Wednesday's game at Wembley can not be overstated.
Minutes later Tottenham's Kieran Trippier was bundled over and Tierney awarded a free kick outside the area, only for VAR to intervene and, after a long delay in which fans were left bemused, upgrade it to a penalty. Oh no. Sure, Son tucked the ball into the corner, but Tierney decided that his feint was an "unsporting" one, disallowed the goal and booked him. The referee checks VAR to see whether it should have been a red. The decision to award a yellow card stands.
Llorente said it was the second-coldest game he has ever played in. And, this time, it was a foul. "I just don't get it and it's just ruined it a little bit". "I hope that eventually they explain it to the supporters".
Serie A and the Bundesliga are both using VAR in their respective leagues, and while the system is far from flawless in Italy and Germany, it appears more streamlined than the instances witnessed in English football so far.
"However, when it comes to the hairline decisions it can end up just slowing the game right down".
But Son does not believe the situation is that simple.
"This is my move", he said of the technique, which is also regularly used by Cristiano Ronaldo. So this, for me, is odd.
Former Premier League referee Chris Foy on BT Sport: "What's been misconstrued is that VAR looks at match-changing instances".
Llorente scored a flawless hat trick in 12 minutes after the restart and Son and substitute Kyle Walker-Peters added further goals in a second half free of VAR incidents. They could make way for Harry Winks, Heung-Min Son, Michel Vorm and Lucas Moura to start.
There have been several controversial VAR incidents this term notably during West Bromwich Albion's 3-2 FA Cup fourth-round win over Liverpool during which the Baggies had a goal disallowed after a four-minute decision-making process. The floodgates were well and truly open and Lamela's cross was tapped in by Son on 65 minutes.
VAR is already in use in MLS and has been trialed in a number of different competitions across various club and global competitions, but the FA Cup is the first time that it has been used for matches that involve Premier League clubs.
Competition for places is hotting up, which Son stressed is only a good thing.
All the while, neither bench, neither set of players nor any of the fans in the ground had the slightest idea what was going on, or indeed what would happen, while the referee took his time deliberating. "I just try to work hard, like today".
"It's the second", he told Spurs TV, when asked if it was the coldest match he has played in. The players here have made me feel welcome and the manager has put his faith in me and given me a run in the team. He's a very nice guy. "People have been calling me from Argentina and everywhere and saying 'Wow, Tottenham, Tottenham, Tottenham".
'We managed to score six goals and luckily we're not on the losing side complaining about VAR.
SPURS slid gracefully into the quarter-finals of this year's FA Cup with a comprehensive victory against Rochdale in icy conditions.
Rochdale's second-ever visit to Wembley - their first was the 2008 League Two play-off final - will be remembered as a significant day for the club rather than for the scoreline. If we want to go to the next stage of the FA Cup, we must win.
The Treasury Secretary warned that the countries who do business with North Korea will not be able to do business with the US. The White House said it had sent a personal message to President Moon from Trump regarding the announcement of the sanctions.
He now has 11 goals and 7 assists in all competitions. "I think he was one of the key players in winning the title". Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has defended his players, saying that they have had a "top" mentality this season.
The indictment also accuses Mr Van Der Zwaan of deleting or otherwise not producing emails sought by the Special Counsel's office. Manafort then hired the Podesta Group and Mercury Communications to lobby U.S. officials to support Yanukovych, using the report.
Scientists were "very lucky to have a window of time where the sea ice moved out and we could get a yacht in", said Ms Lynch. And when they sent up a drone to take pictures, they were surprised to find more than 1.5 million penguins living there.

If we'd gone to the White House, we'd have had the trophy there, we'd have reminisced about what we did in the past. As expected, the Warriors had a dominant third quarter , scoring 27 points while holding Washington to just 14.
His short game has also been razor sharp, saving par 11 times on the 15 greens he has missed in the first two rounds. If it had been hot, this could've been a score in the mid-60s. "Anything under par and day out here is really good".
President Trump also used the speech to renew his call for congress to pass a bill, funding a wall along the U.S. & Mexico border. Oh, I try like hell to hide that bald spot, folks. "He was very obnoxious", Trump said as he complained about how media coverage.
