Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Peter Crouch has claimed that Giovani Lo Celso’s stamp on Cesar Azpilicueta during Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur was a potential ‘leg breaker’.

VAR decided Lo Celso’s stamp was not a red card before later admitting a mistake was made.

Following the game, BT pundit Peter Crouch said: “It (VAR) was brought in to take out human error but we’ve still got human error because the referee has not seen it, we go to VAR to have a look at it and they make a ridiculous decision.

“We’ve got to rule out serious foul play, I mean it could have broken his leg, I go as far to say that.

“If he puts all his weight on his leg there, it’s a potential leg breaking tackle, that’s something we need to stamp out of the game.”
