Fans Think Everton Goal's Versus Arsenal Should Have Been Disallowed

Phil Jagielka gave Everton an early lead after poking in from short distance following Dominic Calvert-Lewin's header ricocheting off Sead Kolasinac.

But fans reckon the goal should not have counted.

Why? Well, because of Lucas Digne's foot. His foot was over the line when taking the throw-in.

Match referee Kevin Friend wasn't even looking at Digne with the linesman on the other side.

However, per FA rules, Digne's throw-in was actually legal.
