Bournemouth recorded a shock 1-0 win at Chelsea as VAR came to the fore late on to award Dan Gosling’s winning goal.
The wins ease the pressure of their manager Eddie Howe.
The win broke a run of five straight defeats for Howe, who were without a number of key players through injury, including Nathan Ake and Callum Wilson.
Gosling’s looping effort (84) was originally disallowed for offside by the referee but a VAR check revealed that it was Dominic Solanke that was in an offside position and, as he was not interfering with play, the goal was given.
The Cherries had to rely on their goalkeeper, Aaron Ramsdale, to make some crucial stops but Chelsea rarely carried the quality in the final third.
Frank Lampard’s men have now lost four of their last five Premier League games and are now looking over their shoulders in the race for the top four.
Bournemouth – who move up to 14th in the table – have now beaten Chelsea three times in their five Premier League visits to Stamford Bridge, the latest consigning Chelsea to their fourth league defeat in their last five matches.
