Former Premier League referee Graham Poll believes referee Mike Dean was right to award Watford a penalty during Chelsea’s 4-1 loss to Watford on Monday night.

Watford opened scoring in the first half after Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was adjudged to have fouled Gerard Deulofeu in the box.

“Chelsea could have no complaints though over the decision to award Watford a penalty when Thibaut Courtois raced off his line, missed the ball and caught Gerard Deloufeu in his follow-through,” Poll told Daily Mail.

“A clear foul and penalty.”
