EPL: Tuchel speaks on controversial VAR decision as Chelsea beat West Ham

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has insisted that the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) made the correct call after a late Maxwell Cornet goal was ruled out in their 2-1 win over West Ham on Saturday.

Michail Antonio gave the visitors the lead in the 62nd minute.

But the Blues hit back with goals from Ben Chilwell and Kai Havertz.

West Ham thought they had scored an injury-time equaliser when Cornet fired into a virtually empty net, but VAR told referee Andrew Madley to consult the pitchside monitor, and he overturned the goal for a foul on Edouard Mendy.

On West Ham’s disallowed goal, Tuchel said: “It was a clear foul on the goalkeeper.

“I had doubts about the first one – but I will not comment; last time, I got punished with huge fines.

“You give your opinion, you will not be fined.”
