Saturday 30 October

Leicester Metropolis v Arsenal RESULT 0-2
Referee: Michael Oliver. Assistants: Simon Bennett, Dan Robathan. Fourth official: Robert Jones. VAR: Jarred Gillett. Assistant VAR: Sian Massey-Ellis.

Michael Oliver was concerned in an nearly equivalent incident to the Laporte dismissal within the Manchester Metropolis v Crystal Palace sport the place Leicester Metropolis’s Johnny Evans wrestled Arsenals Aubameyang to the bottom.
The DOGSO standards had been fulfilled and Evans ought to have obtained a pink card. It was for me a uncommon main error by Oliver on this sport.

Once I coach referees on the appliance of this offence, I ask them to visualise the incident and to remove the participant who dedicated the foul from the scene. Then they need to ask themselves would the offended participant have gained possession of the ball and in a position to have a shot on objective?

That will have been the case, with out query when it got here spherical to the incident with Aubameyang.

Burnley v Brentford RESULT 3-1
Referee: Jonathan Moss. Assistants: Marc Perry, Timothy Wooden. Fourth official: Jeremy Simpson. VAR: Andy Madley. Assistant VAR: Richard West.

Sean Dyche was celebrating his ninth anniversary of managing Burnley – a outstanding statistic

They scored once more however VAR rightly intervened and dominated it out.

Matt Lawton of Burnley headed within the second objective after which Cornet scored to offer the house group a three-nil lead getting in to the halftime break.

Mane and Salah had the ball at the back of the web both aspect of halftime, however each had been accurately dominated out after VAR evaluate. One was for handball and the opposite was offside.

This was an satisfying encounter and Brighton by no means hand over

Brighton scored by means of Mwepus and Trossard and had been accurately denied the winner when Trossard scored in entrance of the Kop, solely to accurately have it dominated out for offside.

Manchester Metropolis v Crystal Palace RESULT 0-2
Referee: Andre Marriner. Assistants: Adrian Holmes, Scott Ledger. Fourth official: Anthony Taylor. VAR: Lee Mason. Assistant VAR: Ian Hussin.

Andre Marriner was accountable for the Manchester Metropolis v Crystal Palace encounter. He witnessed the house group’s Aymeric Laporte wrestle Palace’s Wilfried Zaha to the bottom within the forty fifth minute. It was a transparent foul.
The referee (having made a psychological be aware of the place of the offence, the motion of Zaha in direction of objective and on the time of the offence that Zaha was in charge of the ball and no defenders in a position to put in a problem) accurately raised the pink card and despatched Laporte off for the denial of an apparent objective scoring alternative.
This was the right utility of the legislation and Manchester Metropolis can haven’t any complaints about Marriners choice.

The legislation states: Denying a objective or an apparent goal-scoring alternative
– The place a participant denies the opposing group a objective or an apparent goal-scoring alternative by a handball offence, the participant is shipped off wherever the offence happens.
– The place a participant commits an offence towards an opponent inside their very own penalty space which denies an opponent an apparent goal-scoring alternative and the referee awards a penalty kick, the offender is cautioned if the offence was an try and play the ball; in all different circumstances (e.g., holding, pulling, pushing, no chance to play the ball and so forth.) the offending participant have to be despatched off.
– A participant, sent-off participant, substitute or substituted participant who enters the sector of play with out the required referee’s permission and interferes with play or an opponent and denies the opposing group a objective or an apparent goal-scoring alternative is responsible of a sending-off offence.

The next have to be thought of:
•       distance between the offence and the objective
•       common course of the play
•       chance of maintaining or gaining management of the ball
•       location and variety of defenders

The Manchester Metropolis supervisor approached fourth official Anthony Taylor clearly involved about what he thought of to be Crystal Palace time-wasting.

Legislation 5 – The referee acts as timekeeper

Newcastle United v Chelsea RESULT 0-3
Referee: Paul Tierney. Assistants: Constantine Hatzidakis, Neil Davies. Fourth official: Martin Atkinson. VAR: David Coote. Assistant VAR: Nick Hopton.

Paul Tierney had a snug afternoon, sustaining a low profile and delivering one other correct efficiency.

This was a detailed encounter, with new supervisor Claudio Ranieri starting to make his mark on the Watford type of play.

Nonetheless, the distinction right here was a terrific objective scored by Chez Adams which gave Southampton their first away win.

Sunday 31 October

The primary half was frankly poor viewing and to his credit score referee Taylor remained focussed and in charge of proceedings.

Within the 56th minute, Raphinha opened the scoring for Leeds. Norwich equalised Two minutes later by means of defender Andrew Omobamidele, who headed the objective from a nook kick.

Leeds United scored the successful objective by means of Rodrigo within the sixtieth minute, leaving Norwich staring relegation within the face so early within the season. They’ve solely gained two factors from their first ten video games.

Aston Villa v West Ham United RESULT 1-4
Referee: Chris Kavanagh. Assistants: Dan Cook dinner, Nick Hopton. Fourth official: David Coote. VAR: Stuart Attwell. Assistant VAR: Harry Lennard.

The massive talking-point for me on this sport was how was the forearm smash by Aston Villa’s quantity 30 into the face of West Ham United’s Fornals was missed by each the referee and VAR Stuart Attwell. This was a violent act by Hause and he ought to have been dismissed.
This incident occurred within the build-up previous to the award of a free kick and the issuing of a yellow card to Aston Villa’s Konsa, judged to have dedicated a foul on the sting of his personal penalty space.
Kavanagh issued a yellow card and I imagine that with the incident vast of objective and the ball shifting away from objective that call I might have supported. His choice to situation a yellow card was not a transparent and apparent error so VAR shouldn’t have intervened.
Nonetheless, we all know that when a referee is requested to evaluate the monitor invariably, they modify their choice. Hause ought to have been the one strolling to the tunnel and never Konsa.
