Premier League referee David Coote, who was the VAR at Stamford Bridge, didn’t get a Premier League match this weekend.
The senior official admitted that he made a mistake last weekend in the stamp of Tottenham star Giovani Lo Celso on the Cesar Azpilicueta of Chelsea.
VAR revealed that it made a mistake by not sending Lo Celso for his challenge to the defender in the 2-1 victory of the Blues on Saturday.

Giovani Lo Celso did not receive a red card despite stamping on Cesar Azpilicueta’s leg
VAR took the time to look at the challenge from multiple angles, but did not take action
VAR later admitted that the challenge was worth being broadcast despite the initial decision
The studs of the midfielder cracked on the Chelsea defender and left him in severe pain, but luckily without serious injury.
Referee Michael Oliver did not take action on the field, but VAR assessed the incident from several angles for some time.
They came to the conclusion that it was not worth being sent away or even a yellow card and Oliver did not look at the monitor on the field to see the challenge itself.
Day 2 match host, Mark Chapman, said he asked why no red card was issued and told him: “It was not a clear and obvious mistake because VAR did not feel that his foot was somewhere else could put. “
But later in the game, officials at Stockley Park revealed that it was worth a red card and made a mistake. Referee group PGMOL later said that Coote had taken the decision wrong.
Investigation on Coote increased later Saturday when he seemed to invoke another decision incorrectly in the Manchester City victory over Leicester.
Jamie Redknapp came out with the decision to use Coote as a VAR for a new game on Saturday

Jamie Redknapp made the decision to use David Coote for the second time in a day as the Video Assistant Referee.
‘He (David Coote) had a nightmare before (in Chelsea v Spurs). He is not doing much better here. He needed some rest tonight, “Redknapp said on Sky Sports.
“And he can’t see it was a red card before. That’s a handball. He raises his hands to protect the money maker.
“Look at his hands, he raises his hands to the money maker. You duck.
“He’s the best player in the league, but he doesn’t want to get that ball in his face. It’s that simple. “
