FRIDAY 23RD APRIL
ARSENAL V EVERTON RESULT 0-1 Referee: Jonathan Moss. Assistants: Marc Perry, Dan Robathan. Fourth official: Graham Scott. VAR: David Coote. Assistant VAR: Stuart Burt.
Referee Jon Moss awarded a penalty kick to Arsenal, which frankly for my part was a unsuitable choice. VAR went again to overview an offside within the build-up. Following the same old strains being drawn, it was dominated offside and Jon Moss was off the hook.

SATURDAY 24TH APRIL
LIVERPOOL V NEWCASTLE UNITED RESULT 1-1 Referee: Andre Marriner. Assistants: Richard West, Derek Eaton. Fourth official: Lee Mason. VAR: Andy Madley. Assistant VAR: Matthew Wilkes.
Mo Salah opened the rating for Liverpool within the third minute. Newcastle ought to then have been awarded a penalty when Liverpool’s Alexander-Arnold intentionally barged into his opponent, sending him crashing to the bottom. I used to be amazed that VAR Andy Madley didn’t see this as a transparent and apparent error. Newcastle’s Callum Wilson later scored however this was accurately dominated out for handball. Wilson’s crew mate Joe Willock scored the equalising objective within the dying seconds of the objective to earn the away crew a deserved level.
WEST HAM UNITED V CHELSEA RESULT 0-1 Referee: Chris Kavanagh. Assistants: Adam Nunn, Sian Massey-Ellis. Fourth official: Mike Dean. VAR: Peter Bankes. Assistant VAR: Andy Halliday.
This recreation centred across the incorrect dismissal of West Ham’s Balbuena, who was judged after VAR intervention and overview to have kicked his opponent in clearing the ball upfield. Referee Kavanagh reviewed the pitchside monitor earlier than dismissing the Paraguay defender. I’ve reviewed the incident a number of occasions and the defender in clearing the ball by accident catches his opponent. It was not a problem, there was no malice and sadly this was a unsuitable choice to dismiss him.
Taking part in incidents again in gradual movement distorts the motion and two of our prime referees managed to get this unsuitable.

ASTON VILLA V WEST BROMWICH ALBION RESULT 2-2 Referee: Stuart Attwell. Assistants: Dan Cook dinner, Neil Davies. Fourth official: Anthony Taylor. VAR: Martin Atkinson. Assistant VAR: Timothy Wooden.
