And that's a red card for Fernandinho, hard to spot in real time but good use of VAR. Did de Bruyne get booked as well?
Wasn't / am not sure either. Felt at least a yellow for USB was deserved for the cynical nature of that challenge in the Pulisic build-up. Good of the ref to go back and book De Bruyne in that mess thereSorry, only started with 2019 laws here last month! Got confused.
Yes KDB got YC. But none in the Pulisic build up.
Weird how the ref seemed to play advantage city at first, looked very weird.
Again, no advantage SPA YC anymore (right?) unlesd it was for reckless holding?
Hmm don’t really buy it. I think he lost it thereI'm guessing he played advantage to indicate that he has seen something or potentially seen something and as City had the ball and it could have been the "foul" on Fernandinho it was the only way he could signal. Also, if he'd had signalled advantage to Chelsea it would look weird as then why would you not just award a penalty there and then as City had the ball. Surely advantage to Chelsea would be a penalty and not City having the ball.
Whilst LiVARpool seem to have benefited tremendously from VAR this season it’s amazing how the smaller clubs seem to have been less lucky! How come this lauded system on its launch can throw out such anomalies??
