Arsenal-Man City players to be disciplined for pushing the referee and fighting nerves

Arsenal and Manchester City (hereinafter referred to as Man City) players are being disciplined.

Man City beat Arsenal, the home team, 3-1 in the 2022-2023 Premier League Round 12 held at the Emirates Stadium in London, England at the dawn of the 16th (Korean time). Man City (51 points, +36) rose to lead the league in goal difference over Arsenal, who had equal points. Arsenal (51 points, +27) are still in an advantageous position as they have played one game less.

It was a fierce game like the league leader. Both teams exchanged 6 warnings and played a tight match. There were also many scenes where the players reacted very sensitively to the judgment.

After Erling Haalan won a penalty, Arsenal players protested strongly to referee Anthony Taylor. As a result of the video review, the penalty kick was canceled, and this time the Man City players reacted violently. When Arsenal got a penalty kick in the 42nd minute of the first half, Man City players were dissatisfied and pushed referee Taylor. 바카라사이트

Referee Taylor is also a referee who has a bad relationship with Son Heung-min. He ended the match against Ghana in the Qatar World Cup without giving Korea the final corner kick, drawing backlash. As a result, manager Paulo Bento was sent off.  

The English Football Association (FA) strictly prohibits players from physically acting on referees during matches. In the end, the FA decided on the 18th to punish both clubs for not managing their players properly.

The FA said, “In the 12th minute of the second half, Arsenal players were dissatisfied with the decision and surrounded the referee. Man City players had similar scenes in the 42nd and 64th minutes. Appropriate punishment will be given.”

The FA requires the referee to wear a ‘body cam’ during the game to collect evidence of any harm done.
