VAR Review Sees West Ham's Fabian Balbuena Controversially Sent Off For Challenge On Chelsea's Ben Chilwell

Fabian Balbuena was sent off for West Ham against Chelsea following a VAR review.

After clearing the ball up the pitch, the Paraguayan caught Ben Chilwell with his follow through and referee Chris Kavanagh was instructed to go to the pitchside screen.
