Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel was issued a yellow card against Southampton, and it boiled down to the VAR decision to cancel a first half goal scored by Timo Werner.
VAR decided to call off the goal for a foul made by Cesar Azpilicueta on Kyle Walker-Peters, and it was an incident that happened quite a while before the goal.
Thomas Tuchel and the Chelsea players had every reason to feel aggrieved, and BBC pundit Garth Crooks also slammed the decision by VAR.
Crooks told the BBC: “VAR really should mind its own business. Clear and obvious mistakes we were told. So why disallow Timo Werner’s headed goal for Chelsea in the second phase of play which had nothing to do with the previous phase.
“I assumed the referee waved play on when Cesar Azpilicueta tackled Kyle Walker-Peters in the build up to Werner’s goal but changed his mind when VAR raised a red flag.
It was hardly surprising the Chelsea captain and his manager Thomas Tuchel, went ballistic. Fortunately Azpilicueta didn’t allow the incident to dwell on his mind too long.
He provided the pass of the game for Werner to score Chelsea’s second goal of the match and put right what Martin Atkinson had clearly got wrong.”
