Frank Lampard believes VAR is ‘in a dangerous place’ after more controversy in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Watford.

The west Londoners were coasting towards the three points at Vicarage Road after goals from Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic.

But Watford were allowed back into the game in the final 10 minutes when VAR awarded them a penalty for Jorginho’s trip on Gerard Deulofeu, who converted the spot-kick.

Referee Anthony Taylor’s original decision was overturned after a lengthy checking process at Stockley Park and Lampard insists that was at odds with what he thought was decided at a Premier League meeting he attended this week.

“I have got to be careful. Last week we saw a change in VAR, a clear change in penalties getting overturned,” he said.
