West Ham Denied Opener Vs Chelsea After Controversial VAR Call

West Ham Denied Opener Vs Chelsea After Controversial VAR Call

West Ham United have been denied a vital goal against Chelsea this evening by the tightest of calls from VAR.

Tomas Soucek thought he'd bundled the ball over the line after a huge scramble from a corner to give David Moyes' side the lead.

However, VAR interfered and judged that Michail Antonio was offside while on the floor following the melee.

Chelsea would go on to take the lead moments later from a Willian penalty after Issa Diop hauled Christian Pulisic down.

A final twist would come just before half-time as Soucek popped up again to head home an equaliser, which was not ruled out.

Fans on Twitter have reacted to the incident as well as how long it took VAR to make a decision, with play coming to a standstill for three minutes.
