Chelsea FC has begun their Premier League season with a victory over Everton in Goodison Park this evening. Meanwhile, there were some controversial decisions made by VAR that made today’s game more engaging.
Chelsea started the game well and dominated from start to finish as Jorginho’s first-half penalty separated both sides at Goodison Park and handed them the needed three points.

Thomas Tuchel will be very happy with the progress his team has made and would be looking forward to winning more games this season.
However, VAR made two controversial decisions in today’s game, the first was Raheem Sterling’s penalty call, involving Yerry Mina. The Chelsea winger fell as the Everton defender mishandled him while on the ground in an embarrassing manner. That should have been a penalty!

The second VAR controversial decision was when Chelsea was awarded a penalty after Chilwell was fouled by Doucoure in the 18-yard box. Several replays of the incident have shown that the penalty shouldn’t have taken place as there was no serious contact from the Everton player on Chelsea’s left back.
Nevertheless, VAR apparently didn’t give the first penalty incident and used the second incident as make-up for Chelsea.
