The Premier League on Saturday explained why it allowed the controversial goal of Bournemouth against Chelsea.
Dan Gosling scored the only goal in the match by lifting the ball over Chelsea goalie, Kepa Arizzabalaga in the 84th minute to defeat Chelsea on their home ground.
The referee initially disallowed the goal before Video Assistant Referee (VAR) overturned his decision.
The Premier League explained on its official Twitter handle that the referee’s decision was wrong and that was the reason they over-ruled him.
“After consulting the VAR, referee Graham Scott awarded the goal to AFC Bournemouth because an offside was incorrectly flagged during the attacking phase
“It’s Chelsea 0-1 AFC Bournemouth (88 mins),” the Premier League’s official Twitter handle wrote.
Lampard is suffering the second defeat on a row after being mauled 3-1 by Everton on Saturday, 7th December.
