EPL: Worst VAR And Referee Decision In This Season English Premier League

The center Referee and the Video Assistant Referee in charge of Chelsea and Southampton match should be forced to apologise to Chelsea by the FA after taking a controversial decision against Timo Werner's goal.

Chelsea bounced back to winning ways after losing two straight games this season. It was a dissapointing performance from Chelsea against Manchester City and Juventus but Thomas Tuchel's tactics against Southampton worked as planned.

The former Paris Saint Germain manager made several changes in his starting line up and it worked perfectly as planned.

Trevoh Chalobah scored the first goal of the match in the 9th minutes through set piece. Chelsea dominated the game after the first goal before Timo Werner's goal was cancelled after a review by the video Assistant Referee.

The goal was ruled out by the Referee after the VAR called for a screen check on Azpilicueta's marking that resulted to the goal. The Chelsea captain won the ball from Southampton defender and that lead to the goal.

After the review by the Referee, the goal was ruled out for a foul by Azpilicueta. The Video Assistant Referee and the Center Referee should apologize to Chelsea because that was a clear goal and Azpilicueta collected the ball neatly.

Skysports pundits Micheal Owen And Owen Hargreaves also condemned the decision of the VAR and the Referee to cancel Chelsea's goal.

Southampton scored the equalizing goal in the 64th minutes of the second half by Ward-Prowse. His Red card gave Chelsea the momentum to attack fully.

Timo Werner gave Chelsea the second goal of the match in the 84th minutes of the game. The German international was impressive from the beginning of the match and his performance alongside Lukaku was productive.

Ben Chilwel sealed the victory for Chelsea in the 89th minutes of the game after converting a woodwork by Lukaku.

The blues are now leading the league table after defeating Southampton by 3-1 in the week 7 of the English premier league.
