PL FA finally tells Chelsea why they were denied a penalty vs West Ham United; Here is what they said to Chelsea.

Chelsea thought this was a moment to grab the winner but the penalty plea was denied. Now after this they had criticized the whole stuff.

West Ham thought they won the game when Soucek headed the ball home, but it was called offside following a thorough VAR review.

Conor Gallagher, who had won the loose ball close to the box, appeared to have a chance to give the Blues the lead, but the ball struck Soucek’s hand as he attempted to stop it.

Even though Var supported the referee’s decision, Chelsea’s players vigorously objected to referee Craig Pawson’s ruling. However, the Premier League responded to the ruling (h/t Express.UK) and stated in PGMOL, the organisation that oversees officials for all FA competitions, as follows:

“The ball struck that hand that ‘broke Soucek’s fall’ as he went to the ground, meaning the correct decision was for a penalty not to be awarded.”

However, it appeared that he purposefully stopped the ball with his hands, and Pawson should have reviewed the decision since he might have had a different perspective.

Despite everything, this is by far the best performance of The Blues in recent weeks, and Felix was truly sensational with his exceptional movement, and the other brilliant players also had their moments in the match.

However, the decision seriously reduced our likelihood of winning the game; hopefully, we move on and concentrate on the next contest.
