Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte had a falling out, and the two teams weren't shy about voicing their disagreements.
However, Cristian Romero's unpunished act of pulling Chelsea's Marc Cucurella over by his hair during stoppage time may have made headlines. Significant controversy resulted from it because many people were perplexed as to why the VAR had missed it.
Mike Dean, who was in charge of reviewing the incident and writing in his column for the Daily Mail, admitted it was an oversight and is no stranger to controversy. His words were reported by The Telegraph.
