Arsenal followers livid over inconsistency in VAR, Havertz’s kind a priority
Arsenal fans were furious that VAR didn’t intervene in the Ben Chilwell incident.
VAR is one of the most controversial things in the football world these days. There are both advantages and problems with this technology. arsenal The fans were very vocal about the lack of consistency in decisions.
There is a very big problem with VAR. A very similar incident would also be judged very differently after the intervention of VAR. With all the rules in place, it often boils down to the referee’s decision.
Each referee has his own point of view on each incident. While some may choose to set up a map, others may not. Because of this, there have been many complaints about the decisions that are being made based on the technology.
Granit Xhaka was sent off in Arsenal’s game against Burnley. He grabbed one of the opposing players by the neck and the referee decided to give him a red card for it. Now nobody is protesting against this decision.
But there was a very similar incident in Chelsea’s game against the Wolves. Daniel Podence grabbed the ball from Chilwell for a quick throw-in. Chilwell also grabbed Podence in a way very similar to Xhaka.
“Xhaka fully earned his red card by putting his hand on someone’s throat, but it was VAR who gave the red card. Why shouldn’t VAR do the exact same thing to Chilwell? “How is that not a red card for Chilwell? We’re just asking for consistency, ”said one fan. Consistency will very well be the key to how VAR changes game decision-making.
Chelsea have to accept two defeats, Kai Havertz is not impressed
The past week has not been easy for Chelsea. The club has repeatedly lost in the Premier League. Frank Lampard hadn’t lost two games in a row in almost a year.
You have a tight schedule and fatigue could be a cause. The game against West Ham at the weekend, which is in good shape, is also difficult. After having Arsenal, Manchester City and Villa, all three will be tough games.
But at the moment, that’s the least of Chelsea’s problems. Some of Chelsea’s signings, notably Kai Havertz, failed to live up to the bill. Havertz made the 80 million change to the blues, but could not yet impress.
According to Football London, Frank Lebeouf is concerned about Havertz. “Almost invisible. I raised the point a few weeks ago. We heard Frank Lampard say, “No, we have to give him time.”
Havertz certainly feels the pressure of the Premier League. He couldn’t hold his own on the side. Frank Lampard shows confidence in him, but the question is how long? It feels like Havertz doesn’t really add much to the game.
It’s different from a bad game, almost like you’re just not on the field. In addition to Chelsea’s worries, Hakim Ziyech has been hit and will be out for a week. Hudson Odoi will also be out of the game against West Ham. Suddenly Frank Lampard is missing the broad players. The game against West Ham will be very important as the Blues get back on their feet.
