Chelsea defeated West Ham 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, and there was a massive talking point from that game.

West Ham had a goal ruled out in the 90th minute.

Maxwel Cornet thought he had scored a late goal only for VAR to overturn the goal as Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy was adjudged to have been fouled by Jarrod Bowen.

Newcastle also had a contentious decision with VAR, as their decisive goal against Crystal Palace was ruled out.

According to reports, the Premier League will review the controversial VAR decisions made at Stamford Bridge and St James’ Park yesterday with the referees’ governing body PGMOL.

West Ham boss David Moyes was angry with the decision and claimed the  VAR call was “scandalous” and “rotten”.

After the game, he told Sky Sports: “It is a scandalous decision, absolutely rotten from one of the supposedly elite referees.

“It doesn’t say much about whoever sent him over from VAR as well. It is an unbelievable decision against us.”

The Premier League will now review the working of VAR with refereeing body PGMOL as a matter of priority.
