Scandal at the top of the Premier League

Manchester City overcame Everton (0-1) on Saturday, the English championship leader being saved by an unlikely decision by the video referees.

The Premier League title race took a turn this weekend. As Liverpool contest the EFL Cup final against Chelsea on Sunday (5:30 p.m.) at Wembley, Manchester City obtained his 21st victory in 27 days to take a 6-point lead over the Reds, winning a few hundred meters from Anfield, against Everton (0-1).

Pep Guardiola’s men are doing very, very well, as they were pushed around by Frank Lampard’s Toffees. And if they found the fault thanks to Phil Foden 10 minutes from the end (82nd), for the 7th goal of the young English international, the Cityzens could easily have left with a poor performance from Goodison Park.

Reverse VAR

Rodri, all alone in the Mancunian area, took the ball with his arm (84th). Full biceps! A terrible error of assessment on the part of the Spanish midfielder, which provoked the logical challenge of Everton players and their public.

However, the referee of the match, Mr. Tierney, then listened to his video assistants confirm to him that there was no penalty! A completely unjustified decision on the part of the VAR when a City player had clearly failed. It’s all Liverpool who lost this Saturday.
