The operator of the Premier League’s goal-line technology system has apologized after an error denied Sheffield United a goal in their 0-0 draw at Aston Villa.
Villa goalkeeper Orjan Nyland carried Oliver Norwood’s 42nd-minute free-kick over the line.
But referee Michael Oliver did not receive a signal to indicate a goal.
Hawkeye said it “unreservedly apologises”, and acknowledged that the ball had gone over the line.
It was the first Premier League match since 9 March, with the season resuming after being halted by the coronavirus pandemic.
