After the introduction of the new handball rules, the Premier League has repeatedly disputed the handball points. Veteran Premier League player and BBC commentator Chris Sutton complained. Now as long as the forward kicks the defender's arm in the penalty area, he can get a penalty. The Premier League defender is punished for having arms.
Sutton said: "After seeing what happened to Tottenham defender Dale and Crystal Palace defender Ward last Sunday, the forwards are now thinking about how they can use this absurd rule to achieve their goals. Target the defender's arm. By kicking, you can win a penalty."
"Newcastle couldn't do anything with Tottenham, so he switched to Carol to fight for the header. He did so and aimed at Dale's arm. Dale has no eyes on the back of his head. It is impossible to know that the ball will hit his arm. However, the referee pointed to the penalty spot. Newcastle missed the goal in the entire game, and finally stole a point through the penalty kick. Tottenham’s score was stolen in this way. This new handball rule is being destroyed. Lost the Premier League. After teammate Ward was awarded a penalty for handball, Crystal Palace winger Townsend shouted: "The game TMD is over. "
"We want the Premier League to be full of drama, but it's not this type of farce. The defenders dare to have arms. They are being punished for having arms."
