Despite twice taking the lead, London rivals Chelsea and Tottenham tied 2-2 last weekend. As fouls went unnoticed in the lead-up to Tottenham's two goals, the game was full of contentious judgments and dubious rulings from the referee and the video assistant.

In response to his error from last week, the game's video assistant referee, Mike Dean, has expressed his sincere regrets to Chelsea supporters for making a mistake regarding Tottenham's second goal. He agreed that there had been a foul on Cucurella in the buildup and that the goal should have been nullified.

If Chelsea's victory over Spurs had been credited toward their current league standing, they would have been third, but instead they lost two unfair points and may find it difficult to challenge Manchester City for the league crown without a miracle and a slump in form for Guardiola's team.
