FRIDAY 17TH SEPTEMBER

NEWCASTLE UNITED V LEEDS UNITED RESULT 1-1
Referee: Mike Dean. Assistants: Ian Hussin, Darren Cann. Fourth official: Michael Salisbury. VAR: Jarred Gillett. Assistant VAR: Neil Davies.

Leeds United opened the scoring with a long-range curling shot from Raphina that handed by a lot of gamers within the penalty space and into the again of the online. I believed that the Newcastle United goalkeeper ought to have finished a lot better.

Newcastle United then began to make possibilities of their very own. First, a run by Saint-Maxim and cross on one other day may need resulted in an equalizer earlier than they then a shot tipped onto the put up. It was a wonderful save by the Leeds United goalkeeper.

Saint-Maximin scored within the forty fourth minute after a dribbling run throughout his opponent’s penalty space.

Mike Dean and his crew of officers produced a low-key efficiency permitting the sport to stream.

SATURDAY 18TH SEPTEMBER

WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS V BRENTFORD RESULT 0-2
Referee: Darren England. Assistants: Harry Lennard, Peter Kirkup. Fourth official: David Coote. VAR: Stuart Attwell. Assistant VAR: Stuart Burt.

Eventually, a referee exhibiting braveness in awarding a penalty kick! After a transparent holding offence by a Wolves participant, who wrestled his opponent to the bottom in entrance of a referee who had earlier warned about grappling. Properly finished, Darren England!

Brentford then scored and the Assistants flag was raised. VAR intervened and the purpose right chalked off for handball as indicated clearly by the referee.

Following a breakaway on their left wing, the ball was crossed and Brentford scored their second purpose.

Wolves’ Baptiste was then appropriately proven a second yellow after he had wrestled his opponent to the bottom and despatched off.

BURNLEY V ARSENAL RESULT 0-1
Referee: Anthony Taylor. Assistants: Gary Beswick, Adam Nunn. Fourth official: John Brooks. VAR: Lee Mason. Assistant VAR: Matthew Wilkes.

Arsenal opened the scoring with a purpose from a free kick simply exterior the Burnley penalty space. Within the second half, the VAR reviewed a handball. Referee Taylor was in a very good place to evaluate and VAR confirmed and supported Taylor’s view that no offence had been dedicated.

The primary talking-point on this recreation was when Arsenal’s goalkeeper introduced down an opponent and the referee pointed to the penalty mark for a penalty kick. I have to say that at regular velocity it appeared a nailed-on determination till you considered the replays after VAR intervention. Taylor reviewed his determination by wanting on the monitor and overturned his determination.
What’s attention-grabbing right here is that while the goalkeeper kicked the ball away in doing so he introduced his opponent all the way down to the bottom. Is that this a transparent and apparent error and may VAR have intervened?

Refereeing does have its ups and downs and Taylor appeared slightly jaded after his huge recreation in Europe in mid-week. In that recreation, he needed to rescind a crimson card after exhibiting a participant a yellow then crimson. He modified after been suggested that the participant had not acquired an earlier yellow.

LIVERPOOL V CRYSTAL PALACE RESULT 3-0
Referee: Andy Madley. Assistants: Adrian Holmes, Eddie Good. Fourth official: Geoff Eltringham. VAR: Andre Marriner. Assistant VAR: Simon Lengthy.

Good to see Referee Madley appointed to his second recreation of the season and he will be more than happy together with his efficiency. In what was a recreation dominated by the house crew the referee sustaining good contact with play and constant together with his correct determination making.
THOUGHT THAT CRYSTAL PALACE SHOULD HAVE HAD A PENALTY KICK WHEN LIVERPOOLS TSIMIKAS CHALLENGE BROUGHT DOWN BENTEKE. The Liverpool holding his arms up in a ‘I didn’t contact him pose’
Sadio Mane scored his one hundredth purpose for the membership then Salah scored the second and with ten minutes to go Naby Keita scored a 3rd from a curling shot.
Nonetheless some work to do for Crystal Palaces administration crew who proceed to strengthen their squad,

MANCHESTER CITY V SOUTHAMPTON RESULT 0-0
Referee: Jonathan Moss. Assistants: Marc Perry, Timothy Wooden. Fourth official: Peter Bankes. VAR: Martin Atkinson. Assistant VAR: Richard West.

It’s been a poor weekend for the older statesmen of the Skilled Sport Match Officers. Each Martin Atkinson and Jonathan Moss are fifty-year-old.

On Saturday 18th September, Atkinson was VAR sat in entrance of broadcast screens at Stockley Park for the sport Manchester Metropolis v Southampton, Moss was the referee.

Within the sixtieth minute of the sport, Referee Moss needed to make a giant determination when Manchester Metropolis’s Kyle Walker dedicated a careless problem on Southampton’s Adam Armstrong bringing him to the bottom.
Armstrong had sprinted into the penalty space with the ball and was ready to get his shot on purpose away when he was fouled. Referee Jon Moss didn’t hesitate and pointed to the penalty mark and approached Kyle Walker and held up excessive the crimson card.

It was a very good determination from Jon Moss who was well-positioned after which to my amazement (in addition to many followers within the stadium and sat in entrance of tv screens all over the world), VAR Atkinson intervened and suggested Moss to go to the monitor to overview his determination.

VAR Atkinson had no proper below the CLEAR AND OBVIOUS VAR standards to intervene.

Moss then displayed a weak spot and determined to place his belief in his colleague Atkinson, and took solely a brief look on the monitor and deciding to overturn the crimson card and penalty kick award to Southampton.

The pair of them getting a key match incident flawed that impacted on the consequence.

NORWICH CITY V WATFORD RESULT 1-3

Watford’s Sarr then scored twice within the 63rd and eightieth minute to realize a simple win. The ultimate purpose was checked for offside and appropriately allowed after the overview.

ASTON VILLA V EVERTON RESULT 3-0
Referee: Craig Pawson. Assistants: Simon Bennett, Dan Robathan. Fourth official: Simon Hooper. VAR: Paul Tierney. Assistant VAR: Lee Betts.

Aston Villa produced a very good efficiency and could have been delighted with the efficiency of Bailey who got here on and scored within the seventy fifth minute following up on earlier targets by Money 66th minute and an personal purpose within the 69th by Everton’s Digne.

The 2 essential talking-points have been from Villa’s Scotland worldwide McGinn difficult with Demarai Grey and ending up with a head damage. McGinn was allowed again onto the sector to proceed to play. He then needed to come off after feeling dizzy twenty minutes later with concussion.  Villa ought to re-visit their protocols on concussion accidents and permit the medical crew to make the choice for a participant to proceed not the participant himself.

The opposite talking-point was when Pawson allowed play to proceed after a transparent pull-back on an Everton participant on the sting of Villa’s penalty space, His benefit didn’t materialise right into a purpose and he may need returned and cautioned the Villa offender.

Referee Pawson will be very glad together with his efficiency.

A penalty kick was awarded to Brighton for an alleged handball by Leicester Metropolis’s Jannik Vestergaard. The ball did strike the hand, however each officers ignored the truth that the Leicester Metropolis participant was being held and wrestled to the bottom. It was the turning level within the recreation and a critical error.

WEST HAM UNITED v MANCHESTER UNITED
Referee: Martin Atkinson.  Assistants: Lee Betts, Richard West. Fourth official: David Coote. VAR: Darren England.  Assistant VAR: Dan Robathan.

On Sunday, Atkinson was now the referee for the West Ham United v Manchester United recreation after officiating on the Etihad the day earlier than. His efficiency on this recreation was properly beneath the usual that you’d count on from an official of his expertise. Was he nonetheless carrying the load of his earlier day’s involvement within the Saturday recreation for his efficiency was beneath his traditional customary?

Manchester United will really feel aggrieved {that a} foul on Ronaldo was not penalised with a penalty kick that left the United participant wanting bemused. The place was VAR? In my view, this was a transparent and apparent error and he ought to have intervened.

The penalty kick for a deliberate outstretched arm by Manchester United’s Luke Shaw required the intervention of VAR to make sure that West Ham United have been awarded a penalty kick after Atkinson reviewed the monitor.
Following a fast substitute West Hams Noble got here on and missed the spot kick.

Ronaldo ought to have had a penalty kick, the handball and resultant penalty kick determination right.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR V CHELSEA
