Chelsea played out a disappointing draw in their crucial Premier League clash against Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.
It was an incredible performance from Thomas Tuchel’s men, but the manager would be quite unhappy with the result.
Chelsea dominated possession for most part of the game and created a lot of good chances. Koulibaly gave Chelsea the lead before the half-hour mark with a sublime volley from 14 yards.
Chelsea’s lead was snatched away in the 78th minute as Hojbjerg fired home from the edge of the box with a spectacular strike.
Chelsea restored their lead four minutes later as Reece James finished off Raheem Sterling’s brilliant pass.
That goal wasn’t enough to secure three points for Chelsea as Tottenham managed to steal a point with was the last chance of the contest.
Tottenham’s goal wouldn’t have stood if VAR had penalised Romero for his foul on Cucurella in the buildup. The Spur’s defender clearly grabbed Cucurella’s hair before pushing him to the ground.
The Video Assistant Referee received a heavy criticism for overlooking the incident. However, I guess VAR was right to overlook Romero’s foul on Cucurella because the latter went down too easily. It is evident that Cucurella anticipated the foul as he quickly went to the ground following Romero’s touch on his hair.
