67th minute incident during Chelsea defeat will have West Ham fans absolutely seething

West Ham were on the wrong end of a shocking VAR decision during our clash with Chelsea yesterday afternoon.

The Hammers went 1-0 up with about 30 minutes still to play against Chelsea yesterday.

The West Ham players thoroughly deserved their lead in fairness. They defended very well in the first-half and came out with more attacking intent during the second 45.

Thomas Tuchel’s side came back into it though with goals from Ben Chilwell and Kai Havertz.

Maxwel Cornet smashed home immediately after Chelsea’s second goal to tie the scores at 2-2. The goal was ruled out by VAR though after West Ham ace Jarrod Bowen was adjudged to have fouled Chelsea goalkeeper Édouard Mendy.

It really was an awful decision and hurt so much. We may not have deserved to win the game but we certainly didn’t deserve to lose it.

And looking back on the game, something happened that highlighted the huge inconsistencies that have become prevalent with VAR…

67th minute incident at during Chelsea defeat will have West Ham fans seething

When the Hammers led 1-0, Lukasz Fabianski got absolutely clattered by a Blues attacker.

Did the referee blow for a foul though? Of course he didn’t:

That really is a joke isn’t it?

The inconsistency of the decision making really is farcical.

West Ham were robbed of a point against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge yesterday.

Something needs to be done about the shocking performances of the officials on the pitch and behind close doors operating VAR.

It’s time for independent regulators in my opinion. Whether that will ever happen remains to be seen though.
