Was it a penalty? Was the contact natural?
These are the questions that have divided fanbases with some of the most difficult spot-kick calls over the years.
This time around at Stamford Bridge, however, there could be absolutely no debate over the nature of Nicolas Jackson’s intervention in the penalty box following a Dominik Szoboszlai corner and the resulting action VAR should have objectively taken.
A handball – a BLATANT handball at that, and one that leaves us wondering, yet again, how on earth the officials at Stockley Park could have deemed the offending party innocent.
You have to wonder, eh?
