Thomas Tuchel (Chelsea coach): “VAR obviously worked in our favour. I think there’s a reason it worked in our favor. It’s my opinion. I don’t know if everyone shares this opinion. My opinion is very clear, there is fault on Edouard Mendy. The first goal we concede is very similar to the situation we had against Tottenham, but I’ll let you decide if that goal should be allowed and if it’s not the same as against Tottenham. I won’t comment anymore because what happened against Tottenham was so obvious, and I paid a lot of money for commenting, so I won’t. »
David Moyes (West Ham coach): “I’m amazed that the VAR asked the referee to watch the action. But once I saw it myself, I was like, ‘Even if he goes on screen, there’s no way he’ll cancel that because it’s a goal’. It was a ridiculous and bad decision.
I actually had the opportunity to look at it from three or four angles, which they did. There is no excuse for VAR. Today, there is no reason for it not to be a goal, none. What is sad is that this is the level of our elite refereeing at the moment. »
