Fans perplexed by Premier League's absolutely bizarre ruling over Diogo Jota red card

Fans perplexed by Premier League's absolutely bizarre ruling over Diogo Jota red card

There is more drama.

The Premier League's Independent Panel has spotted yet another error during Liverpool's 2-1 defeat to Tottenham.

Premier League officials have come under fire for a number of contentious decisions made at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last weekend.

The PGMOL confirmed that Luis Diaz had a goal incorrectly ruled out for offside in the first half, as they released audio of VAR's miscommunication with referee Simon Hooper.

The mistake has left plenty of Liverpool supporters seething, while Jurgen Klopp has publicly called for a replay of the match.

However, that wasn't the only thing the referees got wrong on the day, with Jota's second yellow card reportedly also incorrect.

The 26-year-old was shown his marching orders after two challenges in little more than a minute on Spurs defender Destiny Udogie. But the latest review shows that he should have stayed on the pitch.

A report from ESPN claimed that the Premier League's Independent Key Match Incidents Panel has concluded that 'the second tackle on Udogie in the 69th minute was not worthy of a second yellow card, with the five members voting 3-2 against a booking'.

Responding to the news on Twitter, The Athletic's James Pearce wrote: "So panel rule that Diogo Jota’s second yellow was wrong. They don’t look at a first yellow (which in this case was clearly wrong).

"So he got sent off for two fouls when neither of them were bookings. However, his one-game ban stands."

The panel also allegedly agreed it was the worst weekend for referees this season due to four failures in VAR interventions - more than the entirety of last season combined.

It was ruled that Aston Villa's second and third goals in their 6-1 home win over Brighton & Hove Albion should have been ruled out, with the panel split 3-2 in favour of the goal being disallowed.
