Jamie Carragher has explained why he feels VAR was wrong to award Manchester City a penalty against Chelsea in the latest controversial call from Stockley Park. Chelsea had made a promising start to their clash with the defending champions, holding their own and causing problems for Pep Guardiola.
But the safety was broken in controversial circumstances and VAR in the center again. The Chelsea players felt that Reece James and Moises Caicedo were initially fouled but the referee kept an eye on the play before Bernardo Silva hit a terrible cross into the box for Haaland.
The final game of the City was playing with Cucurella and the two players were drawing each other in the box. VAR took several minutes to go over the footage before apparently focusing entirely on the footage of Cucurella dragging Haaland to the floor.
The decision was quickly made to award the penalty to City with Haaland scoring from the spot.
But Carragher did not understand why VAR did not take into account that Haaland had also grabbed Cucurella before the striker fell to the floor.
“This is not right,” Carragher said on Sky Sports. “Haaland also had a grip on him. I think that’s what puts him in front of him.”
“No, no. This is not right. The VAR looked at the end of the tussle. It has to look at the beginning. This is very tough.”
