Professional Game Match Officials Board (PGMOL) has admitted that the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) incidents at Chelsea and Newcastle on Saturday were mistakes, according to Sky Sports.
This comes after the Premier League asked the officiating board to investigate the referees’ body.
Saturday’s Premier League action was marred by a couple of decisions that were either overturned, thanks to the intervention of VAR or not given.
After the Premier League called for an investigation into key decisions at Stamford Bridge and St James’ Park, PGMOL has acknowledged errors were made in the incidents that denied West Ham and Newcastle goals.
In west London, West Ham were denied a late equaliser when Maxwel Cornet’s goal was chalked off after a VAR review judged that Jarrod Bowen had fouled Chelsea goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy in the build-up.
