The Argentine should have been given his marching orders but the video assistant referee originally deemed the foul to be accidental
Saturday’s VAR has admitted to reaching the wrong decision after Tottenham’s Giovani Lo Celso avoided being sent off following a reckless challenge on Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

Chelsea ran out 2-1 winners in the contest, but should have had it easier as Lo Celso, who stamped on Azpilicueta’s leg, was allowed to stay on the pitch despite his infringement.

The incident happened shortly after the second half commenced, with video assistant referee David Coote originally reaching the conclusion that the Argentine midfielder’s actions were completely accidental.
