Chelseas Callum Hudson-Odoi booked for diving as VAR rules out penalty in Burnley clash

CHELSEA starlet Callum Hudson-Odoi was booked for diving after a VAR review deemed there was not enough contact to send the teenager tumbling to the floor.

The 18-year-old hit the deck after minimal contact from the Burnley defender.

James Tarkowski’s hand was on the youngster’s back
Hudson-Odoi couldn’t believe he was being booked for diving

And referee Michael Oliver had initially shown no hesitation in pointing to the spot.

But after a VAR review, the officials deemed that there was not sufficient contact to send the Blues youngster over.

The replays show no contact between the defender’s legs with Hudson-Odoi.

But they do clearly show James Tarkowski’s hand on the youngster’s back.
