Sorry for my terrible post,I don’t have any excuse.
It’s my fault,I can’t control my emotion.
Anyway,to be honest I still not impress the referee today,He made some bad decisions during the match(ex.Rodri,Bernardo and Odegaard).
On Xhaka,I think he deserved a penalty for sure and Gabriel deserved a red card too.

Arsenal players play really well today and I appreciate it.

Ref was fine, maybe direct your ire at the bloke on VAR

It is so shameful.
Aye I mean the cheek of him using the VAR to fix the peno decision he got wrong and giving 2 absolute stonewall yellows. The only decision he potentially got wrong (without VAR fixing it) was the Ederson one and thats almost impossible to see it he got a toe on the ball (looks like he didn't from 2nd angle).

Mo Salah and Mane have won 50 penalties each doing exactly what Bernardo did...

The Arsenal penalty is definitely clearer than the one City got. There's no logic behind one being given by VAR and the other dismissed.

The only one you can complain about is the arsenal pen. Every other decision was correct.

He should've given more cards for the constant moaning from Arsenal players.

When Martinelli had the open goal the ref was blocking him in the beginning. Should still have scored, but the ref should never be that close to the goal.

You could clearly see Xhaka had a handful of his shirt on replay. Which is an obvious foul. Not visible from the referee’s position. That’s VAR working properly.

There was no obvious mistake with the Ederson tackle. Looked like he won the ball in real time and replays were non-conclusive.

I don’t their either were penalties, but I don’t think I’d argue much if either was given. The red was justified by Gabriel being an idiot. The leniency City and Liverpool get for regular fouls is far more egregious.

The crying over this game doesn't make any sense. That was a clear penalty as Xhaka fouled him, and Gabriel's red card was a result of him having a brain fart.

By far the most annoying fanbase in the world.

I think I have watched so many football matches from old generations to present and I usually stay calm and enjoy it almost all matches, but this match is one of the matches that makes me fecking rampage.

Thought the ref did a good job, considering it was such a fiery match. Arsenal players lost their head.

I genuinely didn’t think he did much wrong.
Arsenal’s penalty, in my eyes, not a penalty.
City’s penalty had two offences - he could have gone down easily with Xhaka’s leg, and then he had a solid shirt grab to put cherry on top. Went down easy, but it’s a penalty.

Gabriel had a stupid yellow for scuffing the spot, and then clearly body checked Jesus needlessly.

Keown is as bitter as they come - and I enjoyed it.

The ref had an excellent game. No idea what you were watching. The only people losing the plot were the commentators.

There is no way you support Liverpool and AC Milan in 50:50 ratio

Deepthroating information to Howard Nurse.
He had a good game. Keown moaning about holding getting booked for a clear yellow and Laporte not being penalised for a non-existent “high arm” was pretty funny. To accuse the ref of losing control of the game when he was an unbiased emotional clown on comms was slightly ironic.

Nonsense. They got every decision spot on.

People are having a melt down because they think if a team plays well they are entitled to not have good decisions go against them.

Yeah especially when he agreed it was a pen to city and then changed his tune 10 mins later. He’s an idiot, cannot bare him on commentary.
