City fans bombarding Fred and Lingard with lighters and water bottles while trying to take a corner... and one guy in the front row making gorilla gestures at Fred.

Definitely handball contact visible to all. But it would have been an absolute travesty to give that as a penalty. Yet I thought the rule was very simple: any handball by a defender in the area is an automatic penalty, intentional or not. Has that changed yet again? Or is VAR getting better?
Or is it any handball for an attacker? I am so confused anymore.

Any unintentional handball, such as the one you're on about, is not a penalty. Would have been nice to have seen the penalty awarded against Brighton though.

Still makes no sense. How can you have unintentional handball for one team but not the other? Surely that inconsistency is clearly wrong. I know this has come up before but I can't remember if one of our VAR experts has explained why it makes any sense at all.

If our board had any sense (LOL) they would get the lad back home as a attacking coach to teach our Strikers how it's done!.
