Lampard blasts VAR after Chelsea defeated Tottenham 2-1

Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has again lashed out at VAR officials, following their 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Spurs playmaker, Lo Celso, escaped a red card for a stamp on Cesar Azpilicueta in the second half.

VAR official, David Coote, decided that the player had accidentally stepped on Azpilicueta.

Lampard, who also saw Harry Maguire escape a sending off for a stamp on Michy Batshuayi, earlier this week, told BBC: “It is not good enough, that is two VARs in two games.

“It is hard to shout about it when you have lost but today everybody saw that. It is a red.

“I hate to call for red cards but that is a leg breaker. I am not saying about referees on the spot, VAR is here to clear things up and it is not good enough.”
