VAR made a number of controversial decisions over the weekend

West Ham were denied a late equalizer at Stamford Bridge when Maxwel Cornet’s strike was ruled out, with Jarrod Bowen deemed to have fouled Edouard Mendy.

David Moyes was furious after the incident and declared VAR manager Jarred Gillett unfit for duty, while clashing with referee Andy Madley.

Newcastle also had a goal ruled out in their 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace when Joe Willock was charged with fouling Eagles goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.

Both decisions were heavily criticized and the Premier League have now called for the issues to be reviewed.

Former Liverpool striker Dean Saunders believes the referees’ lack of knowledge of the game is highlighted by recent VAR errors.

He told the Weekend Sports Breakfast: “VAR is there to help the referee, and it’s tough what I’m going to say, but some referees don’t understand football.

“The VAR check exposes them, because what are you looking at? You don’t even know what you’re looking at.

He continued: “I am convinced that if I had seven screens, two or three minutes, to watch seven different angles of an incident because I played football, I would be able to understand what happened. happened during this incident.

“I’m sure I would get 50 wrong. They get it wrong every week, it’s just ridiculous.”
