Not seeing what Carragher is seeing tbh. Looks like Cucurella dragging Haaland all the way.

Do think Doku barges one Chelsea player into the other though. Look at that and look at the goal we got disallowed against Fulham for a foul on the keeper then I don't know what the difference is?

Haaland fouls him.
Eh, I thought they were both grappling with each other, but when Haaland is past him it's extremely risky to pull him back.

Seeing it again and I agree with this. Feel like I've only seen City get those soft penalties this season though. Was the same against Man United.

It wasn't a foul in either case for me, both pretty normal contact.

Halland drags him back first to get infront of him.

The City penalty is extremely soft. The foul by Cucurella on Haaland is no worse than the earlier foul the other way. Can't be giving that for me. Chelsea deserved the equaliser too.

They've both got hold of each other at that point, he was just stronger.

I actually do see your point, if Cucurella had gone down at that moment then maybe he'd get the foul if not from the ref then from the VAR in review, but that sort of grappling is rarely punished. When one player gets in front of another and there is a tug then again you're asking for problems.

What was Cucurella warned for after they scored?

It kinda sounded like it might have been one of those that a lesser team might get a second yellow for.

Wow 2-1

Poor from Gvardiol on that occasion.

This is a really poor performance from City, so passive.
