Ward-Prowse blatantly body-checks Almiron to stop him. Attempt to play ball – none at all Distance between the offence and the goal – before center circle General direction of the play – directly toward goal and only the goalkeeper remaining Likelihood of keeping or gaining control of the ball – zero Location and number of defenders – 2 attackers clean through by 10+ yards How on earth did Anthony Taylor think this was not a red card for denial of obvious goalscoring opportunity? #premierleague #soccer #referee
Unlike Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane was not offside because he was not doing anything obvious to influence play. Dejan Lovren miskicked the ball on his own without any help.
Of course, the exchange between Jon Moss and his assistant Eddie Smart did not really help Moss’ not-so-great reputation.
