Chelsea manager Antonio Conte: 'VAR must improve'

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte: 'VAR must improve'

But the match will be remembered for a series of refereeing controversies, with three Chelsea players - Willian, Pedro and Alvaro Morata - all booked for simulation. Nonetheless, Antonio Conte's side survived a 94th-minute equalizer and managed to advance 5-3 in a shootout after a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea and Norwich City played out a dramatic FA Cup third round replay clash at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, with the Blues seeing two men sent off before ultimately beating the Canaries on penalties.

Despite watching 13 different camera angle replays in normal and super slo-mo speed, Jones told Scott his initial decision did not need to be reviewed. Norwich are meanwhile goal-shy too as they have scored just 13 times in last 14 games. Timm Klose crossed from the left flank and Jamal Lewis evaded Davide Zappacosta to guide a header into the roof of the net. It was the third time VAR was in use in English club football and the first time it was used to overturn a decision.

"If the person checking the situation calls you and says it's a penalty, you say you made a mistake, take back the yellow card and give the penalty". The first yellow card was for a doubtful situation - I didn't watch Morata's situation yet - but the second was for dissent.

Right-back Ivo Pinto was struggling with cramp in extra-time and was replaced by Alex Tettey for the final five minutes. The referee took quickly a decision to book Willian. Then Morata was booked for simulation and again for remonstrating.

I've been in the crowd for two matches "enhanced" by the video ref and the system has been a disaster.

Pedro was sent off in the second period of extra time after being shown a second yellow card for a foul on Wes Hoolahan - his first was for diving - while Morata followed him moments later. But Conte was not convinced and confronted the officials before the shoot-out began. Eden Hazard took the penalty that sealed a fourth-round meeting with Newcastle.

Sky Bet League One leaders Wigan stunned top-flight Bournemouth with a thumping 3-0 win.

The problem is that for every wrong decision on the pitch where video replays are badly needed, there are countless other examples of the system being used incorrectly. Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Andy Carroll from West Ham United, and it is not completely out of the question that Batshuayi will depart west London before the start of February. In the second half, Diogo Jota equalized but Wilfried Bony secured Swansea's passage into the fourth round.
