On-loan Arsenal participant Willock discovered the web as soon as extra for Newcastle and I suppose given his step up in kind below Steve Bruce they are going to wish to make him a summer time buy for the membership.

I used to be quite shocked that Referee Taylor waved away appeals for a penalty kick, regardless of being in an important place. An alert VAR Peter Bankes intervened and after reviewing the monitor, Taylor pointed to the penalty mark.
Taylor’s judgment of permitting the Spurs objective to face after the goalkeeper Schmeichel was indicating that he had been fouled was in useless. Taylor had received this one proper. Nevertheless, within the build-up to one of many targets, Harry Kane by accident dealt with the ball that then went to a colleague who scored. This could have been dominated out.
