In the 49th minute of the sport, Chilwell brought a knock from Kovacic and Aubameyang faucets home but the flag is up for offside. And the strike need to have made the sport leveled.

The new look VAR then continued the goal as offside but did not look like the technology used in the Premier League which Chelsea is used to. Instead of displaying the normal pictures of the game, the new VAR displayed a computerized graphic that shows Aubemayang to be offside.
