(Chelsea – West Ham 2-1) Two minutes before the end, Kai Havertz sent Chelsea fans high. Seconds later, West Ham thought they had equalised, but the VAR judges would get the score differently.
Watch the situation at the top of the case!
– It’s a scandalous decision – a corrupt decision – from a supposedly elite judge. West Ham manager David Moyes told Sky Sports after the match that it was an unbelievable decision against us.
West Ham captain Declan Rice wrote on Twitter: – It’s one of the worst VAR decisions.
– I can’t believe the referee was asked to look at the screen, Rice goes on in one Another message.
Substitute Maxwell Cornet thought he equalized when he hit the ball into the roof of the net before extra time.
But the video judges told referee Andy Madley that he must reconsider the outcome. In front of goal, Jarrod Bowen was somewhat delayed in a duel against Chelsea goalkeeper Edward Mendy. After taking a look at the video screen, the relaxed Chelsea fans can cheer for the cancellation.
“I think the goalkeeper (Mendy) throws himself, loses the ball, pretends to be injured because he couldn’t get to the return,” Moyes continues in the Sky Sports interview.
Bowen’s left foot hit Mindy in the stomach, not the violent blow, but enough for the VAT bus to consider the situation a “clear and obvious mistake”, a criterion used by the referee for the aid.
“We were fortunate to get the VAR decision, which on my part was the right decision,” Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel told the BBC.
Totally shocking, ex-England player Michael Owen tweeted about the 2-2 scoreline being called off.
It’s a ridiculous decision, says British expert Danny Murphy on BBC.
Thus, Chelsea guarantee three important points, five points behind league leaders Arsenal, who face Manchester United on Sunday.
Kai Havertz became the big hero from the bench when he saved Chelsea with a 2-1 goal two minutes from the end after Ben Chilwell’s cross.
The latter secured a great goal 1-1 when he hit a ball from his teammate Thiago Silva. It was a high quality finish as West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski had to watch the ball roll between his legs and into the net.
After 62 minutes, after a lot of pushing and shoving in a corner kick, Micael Antonio hit the ball into the net from close range to give West Ham a 1-0 lead.
In front of goal it was a toothless performance with a Chelsea side that had plenty of possession, while West Ham were well organized.
– This wasn’t a first half for the history books, Jürgen Klemm, a Viaplay commentator, described the first half with great caution.
Wesley Fofana, at a cost of just over NOK 800 million, started today’s game at the heart of Chelsea’s defence.
West Ham occupies 17th place with four points after today’s match.
