In the 30th minute of tonight’s Premier League clash between Manchester City and Southampton, it looked as though Pep Guardiola’s side should’ve been awarded a penalty.

Phil Foden pounced onto the ball after a woeful error from the usually solid Alex McCarthy, whose heavy touch saw the ball run free, the England international stopper then cut down the starlet with a challenge.

20-year-old Foden somehow managed to stay on his feet despite the tough and seemingly unlawful sliding tackle, battling back up before the move eventually played out.

In a disastrous turn of events, VAR was called in to review this for a possible penalty, but found no wrongdoing, Foden has essentially been punished for doing the honourable thing after being fouled.



Whilst the end of the season is usually a dreary prospect for football fans, at least we can hope that some much-needed refereeing, ruling and VAR changes are made ahead of next season.
