It's a shame, because I thought he was decent in open play and grew into the game, but Hamza was not great for either goal we conceded.

 

He's young and he's learning.

 

I hope he learns from this and gets another chance, if Wilf isn't available.

Agree with you, but if he only found he was playing 30 minutes before kick-off that can be hard to prepare yourself. He will learn of course over time!

At the end of the day if the ball hits his arm surely the ref should be looking at VAR. we are told that VAR is not there to ref the match but yet they check every goal for offside if this is not VAR reffing a game I don’t know what is.

This is tongue in cheek right? It must be. Sometimes hard to tell anymore!

Why? What he says was true. The fact that it wasn't even checked, whilst VAR wasted a couple of minutes watching Abraham's obvious trip over his own feet at the other end is the glaring inconsistency for me.

We have the worst referees in all of Europe's major leagues , its a well known fact and its the same for every team . You have to live with that but the fact they do not use VAR properly is inexcusable.

I don't doubt that it was accidental handball by Rudiger but it prevented a possible goalscoring chance so surely should have been reviewed?

Today was more about avoiding defeat, which we did. Was a really good response and Rodgers deserves some credit for picking some of the younger lads up after Tuesday night.  The performance today was more like the Leicester we saw that won 9/9, quick and resolute. Point gained and maintains the gap.

In many ways a game decided by two headers.

 

Rudiger's on target; Evans' not.

 

For the want of those two touches, could have been 3-1 (though of course if Rudiger HAD missed, then Evans' chance wouldn't have transpired, due to the laws of causality.

Thought we responded brilliantly to going behind today. Most pleasing aspect of the performance for me. Shite goal at a horrible time but we immediately took the game to them.

Has anyone got a clip of the handball?

Could ask PGMOL?

Very enjoyable game of football. Shame we couldn't edge it, think we were slightly the better side.

 

The same cretins round me chanting "**** VAR" on the first half then chanting "VAR VAR" at the end. FFS make up your minds whether you want it or not. Knobs!

Unfortunately the same clowns that ref the matches are also in charge of VAR. Crying out to be run independently.

Embarrassing, disgraceful, pathetic. 

 

Absolutely no excuse whatsoever for me sleeping in and missing what looked to be like a very exciting match!

Don’t personally think it was a penalty but the whole thing is a complete joke. For it to not even be looked at is mind-boggling.  When Soyuncu’s handball against Liverpool was given all I heard from the refs, pundits and experts is that if the ball hits the hand under the new law and diverts the ball/prevents a goal scoring opportunity then it should be given. I accepted that at the time. 

 

So tell me today why VAR haven’t even reviewed it. Rudigers hand blocks the direction of the ball and despite his arms being close to his body his hand is sticking out and makes his body bigger. Just bizarre and annoying. This week is the first time I’ve been really fuming with VAR. All the other incidents this season I’ve just accepted as part of the teething process but it’s an absolute joke.

Never a penalty in my opinion. If the one against villa isn't ( but we all know was) then this one is never a penalty. Having said that if it happens at Anfield and it's given then it wouldn't be overturned. That the problem with VAR

Not a penalty, just a crap pass from Barnes.

 

Will take the draw. Decent performance in the end, especially pleased with Perez, but really concerned about Kasper.

I thought that any handball was a penalty regardless of international or not.

Cags wasnt intentional.

Hamza is not a like for like with Ndidi but with Mendy injured its all we can do . Wilf is a defender through and through and his positional skills are based on that . Hamza is a box to box midfielder and is best at breaking up attempted counter attacks . Unless we find a suitable deputy for Wilf we must keep Mendy.

Always get a bit worried when Kasper and Vardy lose a bit of form, usually means there's something wrong with the manager.
