Chelsea sarcastically criticized the referee for not declaring a handball foul.
Chelsea drew 1-1 in the 2022/23 season Premier League round 23 confrontation with West Ham United held at London Stadium on the 11th (Korean time).
On this day, Chelsea started to take the lead in the 15th minute when Joao Felix, who was hired on loan from Atletico Madrid, scored his debut goal for Chelsea, but could not keep the lead for long.
In the 27th minute of the first half, West Ham full-back Le Palmieri equalized to balance the game. Emerson, who is from Chelsea, refrained from the ceremony to honor his former team. 메이저놀이터
Both teams, who were fighting fiercely for three points, failed to score until the end of regular time in the second half, but a decision in the 44th minute of the second half made the Chelsea players excited.
In the 44th minute of the second half, Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher’s shot was blocked by West Ham midfielder Tomash Soucek who was in the penalty box and fell, but the ball hit his hand.
It was not an effective shot as the ball was deflected after being hit by Souchek’s hand, but the Chelsea players approached the referee and claimed a penalty kick, saying it was an obvious handball foul.
However, referee Craig Pawson, who was in charge of the referee, did not declare a foul, and the VAR referee did not raise any objection, and the situation passed as it was.
Chelsea failed to score a penalty and the game ended 1-1. I had to be content with 1 point.
If a handball foul was recognized and a penalty kick was declared, Chelsea could have won, so Chelsea sarcastically said the referee’s decision on their official SNS account after the game, saying, “Souzak made a wonderful save against Gallagher.”
Chelsea, who did not get three points from the match against West Ham, have been unable to break their sluggishness by continuing a winless streak in their recent three matches.
Chelsea are having a hard time grabbing a chance to rebound as they spend an astronomical amount during the winter transfer window in January, showing a colorless appearance of reinforcing their power.
