Harry Wilson goal of the year so far. Absolutely incredible off of the free kick.
Absolutely perfect hit by Wilson. Wow.
A 22 year old Welsh player on loan from Liverpool. I'm sure they love how well he did last year and is doing so far this year.
Yeah, when they sell him the value should be solid.
Magical peg on free kicks. IF he can develop a bit more, he could be quite good
Holy f***ing hell that shot
Around the 13 minute mark. He only got a yellow, I don't think it deserved a red because it was all the way out at the sideline so tough to argue that Ederson denied a goal scoring opportunity.
C'mon Bournemouth do us a solid..... We need the cushion.
Ignorance is bliss as they say. You're obviously the expert so please enlighten us. Though I'm not sure you've wasted enough time yet.
Harry Wilson what a hit. He would be really nice to have as an option against bunkering teams especially.
How is that not a penalty? WTF?
VAR hates City. Why even have it if you’re not going to call that?
The Silva play?
Ooooh...Silva and Aguero there was beautiful.
Well there goes the upset
It has to be a "clear and obvious error" by the official. They won't overturn borderline calls.
City fans singing a special VAR song
What was borderline there? That's as clear of a penalty as you can get.
KDB has become the fastest player in PL history to reach 50 assists.
He hit the mark in 123 appearances, moving ahead of Ozil who did it in 141 games.
It was borderline because David Silva didn't have clean control of the ball, both he and the defender had their legs outstretched reaching for it and the defender stepped on David Silva's foot. For it to be a foul it has to be careless, reckless, or excessive force.
So Aguero has 400 career goals they said now. What a player he is.
That was a clear cut penalty. Silva got to the ball first, had it under control, which he lost because the defender got in with a late challenge. It is absolutely absurd this wasn't a penalty.
In no way was David Silva in control of the ball, tapping the ball with your toe isn't control. It was a contested ball and wasn't a reckless or careless play.
Noted that stomping on a player’s foot isn’t a foul for future reference
That isn't what happened. The defender was going for the ball and David Silva had his foot go under the defender's foot in the same motion as they went for a contested ball. It's completely disingenuous to claim the defender just stomped on his foot.
If David Silva had the ball and the defender went for a tackle and stomped on his foot, that would have been a foul. That isn't what happened here though, hence the no call and why it was overturned by VAR.
