Chelsea faced Wolverhampton Wanderers at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday, May 7. VAR ruled out Ruben Loftus- Cheek's goal for offside in the first half as the scoreboard read 0-0 at the halfway mark. The midfielder was adjudged to be offside after a lengthy deliberation by VAR officials.

It was a moment of surprise for Chelsea fans and the club's new owner Todd Boehly, who was present at the stadium. The camera panned to Boehly when the goal was ruled out, with the new Stamford Bridge executive looking puzzled.

Angry Blues fans took to Twitter to let him know it wasn't unusual. The Stamford Bridge faithful shared opinions about upsetting refereeing decisions that have come against them over the last two decades. Here is a selection of some of their tweets:

Chelsea seem somewhat comfortable in third position in the Premier League table. They will need to take more points as fourth-placed Arsenal chase them. If they can secure all three points against Wolves, they will push six points ahead of the Gunners, who face Leeds United on Sunday.

The Blues fans will be relieved though, as VAR awarded them a penalty in the 56th minute for Romain Saiss' trip on Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian dispatched the penalty clinically before adding in another two minutes later. The scoreline while writing the article (65') read 2-0 for the Blues.
