Why The Referee Was Right To Disallow Pulisic’s Goal In Today’s Game
Chelsea clinched a win in their crucial Premier League clash against Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening. It was an impressive performance from Potter’s men especially in the first half, and the manager would be very pleased with the result.
Chelsea started the game on the front foot as they looked very dangerous in the final third. Two quick goals from Havertz and Mason Mount put Chelsea in control of the game.
One of the major talking points of the game was the decision of the referee to overrule Christian Pulisic’s goal in the closing stages of the first half.
Pulisic found the back of the net from close range with an instinctive finish but his goal was immediately ruled out by the referee. The referee’s decision sparked a bit of controversy as fans believe Pulisic’s goal should have stood.
However, I guess the referee was right to disallow the goal because Kai Havertz made an obvious foul in the buildup to the goal.
