Jose Mourinho s back and he got off the mark with Spurs first away win since January as his new side beat West Ham last week [Image above from TalkSPORT] but VAR ensured its controversial streak continued. A James Tompkins header was ruled out against Liverpool as they beat Crystal Palace, the goalkeeper standing on the line law was oddly applied in Leciester;s win over Brighton even though it made little difference; yes the keeper saved the penalty but James Maddison had already converted the rebound and there was the Burnley penalty at Watford as well as Francis’s red card for Bournemouth against Wolves. It can’t be any more controversial, can it?
Midweek saw the Champions League and Europa League campaigns continue. There was a comeback win for Spurs as they came from 2-0 down to beat Olympiacos, Chelsea were held to a 2-2 draw by Valencia while there was also a draw for Liverpool against Napoli and Man City recorded a win over Shaktar. Man United and Arsenal both lost in the Europa League with defeats against Astana and Frankfurt respectively. Wolves meanwhile ensured their progression with a 3-3 draw against Braga.
