Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino expressed his frustration with VAR after Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday.

The Blues fell behind by two goals in the first half but mounted a comeback in the second half to equalize. They believed they had scored a late winner when Axel Disasi headed the ball into the net, but the goal was disallowed after VAR review.

This draw keeps Chelsea in 9th place with 48 points.

After the game, Pochettino shared his thoughts on the controversial VAR decision, criticizing the technology’s role in the outcome.

“Two different things: the referee said it was a foul and disallowed the goal and then went to the VAR to confirm.

“The referee is unbelievable and it’s ridiculous. It is difficult to accept these types of things; in the semi-final [FA Cup against Man City] two weeks ago it was handball and it was no penalty; the referee, he didn’t check it.

“It is painful as it has damaged English football and I think Villa players and their fans didn’t understand why the goal was disallowed.

“They said it was foul and if you see the challenge, what happens if we go into every single challenge like this, it is going to be a foul and we wouldn’t finish the game with 11 [players].

“We can talk about the performance or the decision – it is damaging the game.”
