MARK CLATTENBURG: The stamp of Giovani Lo Celso on Cesar Azpilicueta endangered his safety … I am shaky that VAR official David Coote did not recommend a red card
- VAR would The stamp of Giovani Lo Celso was a red card
- Michael Oliver could have missed the incident because of his positioning
- The FA is powerless to ban Lo Celso retroactively because of the referral
Like everyone else, I was a shaky VAR official David Coote did not recommend a red card after Spurs midfielder Giovani Lo Celso had stamped on Chelsea & Cesar Azpilicueta.
Coote had all the corners available and should have been able to establish that this was a clear stamp that endangered the safety of an opponent.
I understand how Michael Oliver could have missed the incident because of his positioning. It happens, but that's why VAR is there. I don't know why Coote did not advise Oliver to check himself on the monitor. I'm sure Oliver would have sent Lo Celso.
The FA is now powerless to ban Lo Celso retroactively because the incident has been referred to VAR and has been checked by officials.
Coote's day went from bad to worse during the evening game, when he did not punish Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City after raising his arms and deflecting James Maddison's free kick.
] An argument could be made that De Bruyne protected his face, but at the moment he was handling the ball, his arms were away from his face and therefore he made himself bigger.
It should have been a punishment.
O Based on Coote's performance, I know for sure that Official Game Match Officials Ltd no longer allows VAR officials to play two games in one day.
VAR did its job well by awarding Burnley a penalty while Bournemouth celebrated scoring on the other side. This was always going to happen, but VAR was right. Adam Smith misjudged a cross and used the ball in the penalty area of Bournemouth.
His team then broke and scored, but VAR Chris Kavanagh did an excellent job of notifying referee Mike Dean of the handball and a penalty was correctly awarded to Burnley.
& # 39; It is a potential leg-breaking tackle, which is something that we have to get out of the game & # 39 ;, says Peter Crouch while BT experts respond to Giovani Lo Celso's stamp on Cesar Azpilicueta
The knobs of the midfielder came down the shin of the defender of Chelsea, causing him great pain, but fortunately without any injury.
Referee Michael Oliver took no action and VAR assessed the incident from different angles for some time, before concluding that it was not worthy of the red card.
But later in the game, officials at Stockley Park revealed that it was worth a red card and they made a mistake.
After the game, BT expert Peter Crouch said: & # 39; It (VAR) was brought in to eliminate a human error, but we still have human error because the referee has not seen it , we go to VAR to watch it and they make a ridiculous decision.
& # 39; We must seriously rule out cheating, I mean it could have broken his leg, I'm going to go that far. If he puts all his weight on his leg there, it is a potential leg equipment, which is something we have to get out of the game. & # 39;
Former Chelsea player Eider Gudjohnsen said he was surprised that the referee was not told to check the monitor on the field for the incident to review for themselves.
He said: & Thinking back to all the years that big decisions have been made, I thought it would be a dream to look at it again. Somehow they are reluctant to do it, I don't understand. & # 39;
Match of the Day 2 presenter Mark Chapman said he asked why no red card was issued and he was told: & # 39; It was not a clear and obvious error because VAR did not feel that it could put its foot somewhere else. & # 39;
After Stockley Park officials admitted that there was an error, there would be human errors rather than technology problems.
The incident happened when Chelsea prevented 2-0 after 52 minutes thanks to goals from Olivier Giroud and Marcos Alonso.
Antonio Rudiger put the ball in his own hands to give Tottenham a lifeline late in the game and Lo Celso stood on the field to possibly get an equalizer for Jose Mourinho's side.
Chelsea managed to hold onto the win, although manager Frank Lampard, Azpilicueta were both unhappy with the decision not to send Lo Celso out.
Giovani Lo Celso SHOULD have been dismissed for STAMP at Cesar Azpilicueta while VAR revealed that they had made a mistake watching the repetition of the incident … after initially claiming that the midfielder could not put his foot anywhere
- ] Giovanni Lo Celso dangerously planted his stallions in the leg of Cesar Azpilicueta
- Michael Oliver took no action and did not look at the on-field monitor
- ] VAR assessed the decision for some time, but decided it was worth a red card
- Stockley Park because he admitted they had made a mistake and deserved to be sent away
VAR admitted they made a mistake by not to send from Giovanni Lo Celso after his violent stamp on the leg of Cesar Azpilicueta.
The knobs of the midfielder cracked on the defender of Chelsea causing him severe suffering but fortunately without serious injury.
Referee Michael Oliver did not take any action on the field, but VAR assessed the incident from several angles for some time.
They concluded that it was not worth steering and Oliver did not check the field monitor to see the challenge himself.
Match of the Day 2 presenter Mark Chapman said he asked why no red card was issued and told him: & # 39; It was not a clear and obvious error because VAR did not feel that he could set foot somewhere else. & # 39;
But later in the game, officials at Stockley Park revealed that it was worth a red card and they made a mistake.
again was not a problem with the technology, but the officials said they had made a human mistake.
Glenn Hoddle said at the time, agreeing with VAR: & # 39; I am not sure if that is a violent stamp on him, I think he tried to drag the ball back. If he tried to surpass him, he would be a little higher than that. & # 39;
But many former players, including Michael Owen, Ian Wright, John Hartson and Ray Parlor, have since destroyed the decision on social media.
Many people criticized Michael Oliver for not looking at the field monitor to review the decision himself.
] While others said Azpilicueta was lucky not to have been seriously injured for the dangerous challenge.
It is VAR's latest statement to make fans angry after Harry Maguire did not receive a red card against Chelsea on Monday.
Giovani Lo Celso wants to follow in the footsteps of Ricky Villa and Ossie Ardiles after signing for Tottenham on permanent terms. made in January
Giovani Lo Celso wants to continue the rich Argentinian legacy in Tottenham after he concluded his loan deal with Real Betis this week.
The midfielder is known from Rosario, the birthplace of Lionel, and is well aware of the significance that Argentina has played in the history of Tottenham.
& # 39; There have been many Argentines in Tottenham in the past and they have always represented Argentina in the best way and left a big impression on the club here & # 39 ;, said Lo Celso.
& # 39; The fans are still talking about Ossie Ardiles and Ricky Villa and Mauricio Pochettino has of course continued this for so many years. Now it is up to us to continue this tradition and we must be worthy of all these wonderful players from the past. & # 39;
Given that Pochettino is also from Rosario, it is perhaps surprising that only now, under Jose Mourinho, does he begin to flourish, apparently first choice in recent weeks under the new manager.
& # 39; It is true that it was not that easy for me in the beginning, I came to a new league, a new language, a new culture – and then I was injured shortly after arrival, "he said.
& # 39; But now I could not feel better and that is thanks to the welcome I received kre eg and all support from the technical staff as well. So now I just enjoy my game and can contribute to what the club does. & # 39;
Tottenham signs Giovani Lo Celso of Real Betis until 2025 after a six-month loan … and Spurs announced at the same time as Inter Milan the departure of Christian Eriksen
Tottenham signed Real Betis & # 39; Giovani Lo Celso for a permanent deal until 2025 after a six-month period at the club.
The Argentinian has taken shape in recent weeks and has written a contract for the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for five

With Christian Eriksen on his way to the exit of Tottenham, Giovani Lo Celso stepped in at the perfect moment
- Giovani Lo Celso went up at the ideal moment to wear Christian Erkisen's shoes to fill
- The midfielder appeared in Spurs & # 39; 1-1 draw with Southampton in the FA Cup
- On the road with Christian Eriksen to Inter Milan, it will be a relief for Jose Mourinho
- He is still susceptible to exaggerated reactions after tackles, but his versatility is striking
Between the dramas & # 39; s Giovani Lo proves Celso quite skilled in setting up a show. It remains the case that clattering shins are exaggerated by the Argentine in a fight for his life, but he is increasingly forgiven for his pure ability to make good defenders' muppets.
What a relief that must be for Jose Mourinho as he enters the last hours of the Christian Eriksen saga. How reassuring that if one rainmaker completes his switch to Inter Milan – possibly even today – the other finds his touch.
It is of course too early for detailed comparisons. Indeed, it may never be the right time when you consider how good Eriksen was and is.
But just as we can take on Lo Celso acclimatized from those overreactions to contact, it also seems safe to bet that he will continue to have days in which he plays like a carving knife. For Tottenham, that's enough and on time.
On Saturday he was excellent for the second time in a week. His slalom between five challenges for the Son Heung-min goal mimicked the acceleration of his recent career.
That he gets a permanent contract from Jose Mourinho this week says everything about his impact in four starts in the past 13 days, after he initially made a softer impression on Mauricio Pochettino when he joined Real Betis.
Perhaps the most striking of his attributes is his versatility. On Wednesday, he excelled as a deep-lying midfielder, who served as an interceptor and leader for rapid attacks.
In Southampton, he was used to the right of the attacking three in a 4-3-3 and in almost back-to-back passages in the second half, he let a perfect ball float to Son and then a fall came. with a precise sliding challenge on Sofiane Boufal.
It is possible that his all-pitch qualities make him look more like Mousa Dembele than Eriksen.
To Mourinho, whose craft has seen 11 midfield combinations in his 17 games, is such flexibility in a player on the form gold dust.
Harry Winks is one of those recorded in the form of the 23-year-old. "It took him a while to get used to the intensity and aggression of the competition, but he is now flying," Winks said.
& # 39; From Spain it is a bit more protected there, the referees are a bit more flexible here. I cannot imagine that he plays in Spain on fields like we have here in the winter and against aggressive players.
& # 39; But he has the quality to deal with that. And he was shown that again.
"I don't think it's good to compare him to Eriksen – both are equal in their rights as top players. They are not direct replacements. Only two very good players. & # 39;
For Tottenham, with all the frustration of a repeat after Boufal & # 39; s late equalizer, it is certainly a relief that comparisons can be made with Eriksen.
Giovani Lo Celso shows that he has the ability to disconnect locks and be a game-changer for Tottenham in post-Christian Eriksen after he had finally reached his pass in England
- Giovani Lo Celso is finally doing well for Tottenham since his summer move
- And how well with midfielder Christian Erisken on his way to the club
- Lo Celso showed conclusive evidence of his ability to attack against Southampton
- He could not be compared to Eriksen, but he could become a game changer for Spurs
One waiting is almost over, the other for sure . If there was any doubt that Giovani Lo Celso was able to play games before Tottenham was in post-Christian Eriksen, then that debate looks better all the time.
And how current. The Eriksen saga is ready to finish, and could even be done mid-week if Inter Milan records the formalities of its relocation, so what a suitable time for Lo Celso to recover. If the last four games tell us something, it is that this Argentinian already has it.
That is not too taxing and it is also not an unhelpful and overly flattering comparison with Eriksen, who has been one of the real gems of British football since 2013.
But just as well there can be a justification in confidence about what Lo Celso has to offer in its capacity to release locks. It took some time after his Real Betis loan for the British public to appreciate what he could do, but he made it pretty clear since the first game in a series of four consecutive 11 days ago began. In those games against Middlesbrough, Watford, Norwich and now Southampton, he was one of the best on the field or the best.
Jose Mourinho was not sure of his best position – one of the two attacking three or midfield three – but when his action against Norwich demonstrated his profound credentials, he showed convincing evidence of this in his more advanced position. his ability to attack.
See his role in Son Heung-Min & # 39; s strike for that. It was a fairly brilliant contribution, which came in what was otherwise a slow burning of a performance in a slow burner of a game. He took possession of the right and deep in his own half and through a combination of swings from Moussa Djenepo, James Ward-Prowse and Michael Obafemi he rode no less than five challenges and covered about 50 meters of ground before releasing the penultimate pass the movement that made the goal.
Moments later he took a step into the tightest spaces surrounded by two men, and changed what could be a slippery situation into an attack with the quietest strides to Harry Winks. He is such a player – one with an instinct and temperament to survive overcrowded areas, but also one who can defend. His tackle on Sofiane Boufal at 1-1 was almost perfect, and also followed with an outburst past two men.
The fact that he subsequently wasted the pass shows the work the 23-year-old has to do, but through the game he seems to be an important player for Mourinho, who continues to tinker with that midfield on every occasion.
If there is frustration, it is the continuation of Lo Celso's trend to overreact to challenges. Three times in this game, due to clashes with Jan Bednarek, Kevin Danso and Ryan Bertrand, he was exaggerated in expressions of pain. Every time he played on.
If he does that much more, he gets a reputation that could overshadow his progress as a player. That would be a shame.

& # 39; It was just a blow, nothing to worry about & # 39 ;: Tottenham handed Giovani Lo Celso boost after midfielder was forced out with injury in heated friendly friend of Argentina with Chile
- Giovani Lo Celso, a summer arrival at Spurs, was replaced on Thursday evening
- He batted heavily against ankle while playing for Argentina against Chile
- But since then he has insisted that he is fine and only got hit in the game
Tottenham Hotspur & # 39; s fears about Giovani Lo Celso who sustained a long-term injury during friendly contact with Argentina in Argentina, has been relaxed after admitting he was not worried about fitness. Celso was forced off the pitch after 53 minutes after receiving a severe blow to the ankle.
The 23-year-old remained in fear behind being beaten by a Charles Aranguiz tackle on the ankle with a challenge for the first half.
But moreover, Spurs & # 39; arrival of £ 55 million in the summer at Real Betis was also claimed by the Argentinian FA that he has sustained a groin injury.
Lo Celso later emphasized that his condition was not a concern after his replacement and admitted: & # 39; It was only a blow, nothing to worry about. & # 39;
Lo Celso has appeared in Tottenham & # 39; s last three Premier League games, but has yet to start under Mauricio Pochettino.
Real Betis expects Tottenham to provide a loan from Giovani Lo Celso to a permanent deal in January & despite the slow start of Argentina in England
- Giovani Lo Celso is expected to permanently come to Tottenham, believe Real Betis
- But the La Liga side thinks he will remain in North London outside his loan agreement
Lo Celso made a slow start in England because he adapts to new requirements
The 23-year-old joined Spurs on the deadline day, initially on loan, with a view to a permanent and fully Spanish club Jose Mourinho to keep the talented midfielder.
Sporting Stadium report that Haro admitted that when asked about Lo Celso's situation, there is an undeniable advantage for Tottenham to activate the purchase option before it becomes mandatory as part of the deal in applied with a substantial discount.
& # 39; Yes, they don't practice because they are not taxed just as good as when they have to do it in June, when the purchase becomes mandatory, & said # Haro.
& # 39; They may also have to perform the mandatory [clause]. We understand that they will practice it, but if not [we will be] happy with the player [returning]. & # 39;
With Danish playmaker Christian Eriksen without a contract in the summer and free to talk to clubs outside of England in January, Lo Celso represents a ready-made substitute already at the club.
It is reported that activating the permanent option in January would lead to up to a £ 27 million deal, while closer to £ 34 million would be due if it wasn't activated until the summer.
Injury has not helped Lo Celso to life at Tottenham with an infectious hip problem that limits him to three starts and eight gigs from the couch.
He has a goal in his Tottenham career so far, in the 4-0 win against Red Star Belgrade, and after he has started the final defeat of the group match against Bayern Munich, the Argentinian will hope to kicking.
Since the arrival of Mourinho, Lo Celso has had difficulty playing and played only seven minutes in the Portuguese first five Premier League games that were in charge.
But the festive accumulation ensures that all members of the Tottenham team are trusted and given the opportunity to impress and therefore secure their permanent switch next month.
