After a fantastic pass, Abraham managed to get clear through on Newcastle goal. He want past the keeper and took the shot. It was destined for the goal, but Lascelles made the block. Fantastic block, but also a very controversial block.
When Lascelles made the block, the ball also hit his arm, and went out of play.
Its true that it wasn’t intentional and was a deflection, but some referees would still give this a penalty and a red card for Lascelles.
So, things would be totally different, as Lascelles wouldn’t even be on the pitch to score his winner.
