(Video) Refereeing double standards exposed as Arsenal avoid penalty for Jota red card offence

Posted by

Liverpool are out of the title race but watching Arsenal succeed in the first-half against Tottenham thanks to an incident that we saw Diogo Jota sent off for, is very frustrating.

Before the Gunners scored their first goal of the day, Dejan Kulusevski was brought down in the box but the incident was not adjudged to be a penalty for the hosts.

When we compare this with the incident that saw our No.20 dismissed in the same stadium, it’s hard to see how one moment was seen as a yellow card and the other not enough for a penalty.

We know that the officials are substandard in the Premier League but they would save themselves a lot of criticism if they were at least consistent.

  1. I’ve said this many times before and it was consolidated again this weekend, the only consistent thing about the PL ref’s is their CONSTANT inconsistency.
    Watching many of the games of the weekend showed how officials are inconsistent in themselves and amongst one another. The rules are not meant to be subjective, but I constantly hear Gallagher and Webb sprout that decisions are subjective. THEREIN LIES THE PROBLEM. Th e rules should not be applied subjectively BUT objectively.
    PGMOL put such a BS spin on the “advantage” ball that Gakpo SHOULD have scored from. Their heads are so far up their collective arses they cannot see the that they are just trying to cover their arses with such crap. The beautiful game is being messed up by the PGMOL “Old Boys Club” for reasons they are not even sure of.

  2. Will keep happening until fans say enough is enough just favouritism and corruption at the highest level the same as city conveniently not facing trial for ffp until end of season when they have conveniently won the league bur yet Everton and forest deducted points literally straight away for the same thing pgmol is an absolute disgrace and bunch of cheating bs
