The Blues suffered a disappointing defeat against United in mid-week.

Levi Colwill believes VAR “has something against” him after referee decisions in Chelsea’s matches against Brighton and Manchester United.

The Blues snatched a narrow win over Brighton but lost 2-1 against United on Wednesday. The Red Devils’ dominant display convinced Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino that the result was “fair”. 

However, Colwill highlighted a VAR decision on United’s second goal, claiming that Scott McTominay committed a foul before scoring.

“VAR has something against me right now, I don’t know what I’ve done to them,” Colwill said about the VAR-reviewed incident.

“Against Brighton they tried to give a pen, and then when I got pulled [by McTominay] they didn’t give anything. If I had pulled him like that they would have given a penalty. It is what it is.

“It was a frustrating night. We had chances that if we’d taken would have made the game quite different, but it’s part of the game and we’ll move on from it come the weekend against Everton.”

Chelsea will return to action with a match against Everton on Sunday. Pochettino’s men will then host Sheffield United in their next league game a week later.
