Subsequently, Son kick-out Rudiger in the ribs and through VAR inspection sent him off. The main referee Anthony Taylor initially seeing no offence before the video assistant referee, Paul Tierney approved it.

Tottenham head coach, Jose Mourinho immediately urges the club to appeal and suggested the Germany international was tricky. This accusation has been tackled by Chelsea boss Frank Lampard. 

However, this situation has made the Portuguese believe that VAR will ruin the joy of football is not well taken care of.

The Football Association insists on Tuesday that Son’s dismissal still exists, meaning the south Korean will now miss three Premier League games.
