Premier League WILL review VAR after controversy in Chelsea vs West Ham and Newcastle vs Crystal Palace games | The Sun

THE PREMIER LEAGUE is set to review the controversial VAR decisions made at Stamford Bridge and St James' Park yesterday with the referees' governing body PGMOL.

The decision comes after both West Ham and Newcastle were denied decisive goals against Chelsea and Crystal Palace respectively.

West Ham had a late equaliser chalked off after Maxwel Cornet capitalised on Edouard Mendy's spillage.

Referee Andy Madley overturned the goal after Jarrod Bowen made minimal contact with the Chelsea keeper, who stayed down.

Meanwhile, Newcastle midfielder Joe Willock had his finish ruled out after he was pushed into goalkeeper Vicente Guaita by Crystal Palace defender Tyrick Mitchell.

Referee Michael Salisbury awarded Palace a free kick for a so-called foul on the keeper, despite his teammate's involvement.

Each decision – which was overturned by VAR – has received heavy criticism from fans, coaches and players.
