A new Premier League record has been released.
British media ‘Goal.com’ reported on the 17th (Korean time), ‘The Premier소닉카지노 League has set a new record for the most yellow cards in a day, surpassing the record set 25 years ago.’
According to soccer statistics outlet Opta, 44 yellow cards were issued in Saturday’s Premier League match, breaking the league record set 25 years ago in 1998.
Referee Peter Banks issued 13 yellow cards during Tottenham’s dramatic second-half victory over Sheffield United, and eight yellow cards were issued during Aston Villa’s 3-1 win over Crystal Palace.
In particular, both teams were dissatisfied with the referee’s decision in the Tottenham game. Sheffield United’s manager has expressed his dissatisfaction with the referee. He went on a wild rant about the referee’s decision during the post-game press conference.
But Sheffield wasn’t the only one dissatisfied with the referee’s decision. Tottenham were also dissatisfied with some decisions that were unfavorable to them. There was a penalty appeal for fouls by James Maddison and Son Heung-min, but it was not acknowledged.
Additionally, Tottenham’s goal was disallowed due to a suspicious foul during the build-up process. The Sheffield United goalkeeper only received a yellow card despite handling the ball outside the box, and Solomon’s shot, which was blocked by the goalkeeper, was ruled a goal kick.
Overall, it was one of the worst refereeing decisions of recent matches and left fans of both teams feeling uncomfortable.
Additionally, both Tottenham’s home game against Sheffield United and Aston Villa’s game against Crystal Palace saw extra time extended too far, resulting in more yellow cards being issued beyond the 105-minute mark.
