Watch as Matt Ritchie makes a controversial handball inside Newcastle penalty area against Leicester City in Premier League.
Matt Ritchie got lucky, but Leicester still came back.
Its 1-1 between Newcastle United and Leicester City. A fine match that already had a big controversial moment.
Matt Richie played with hand in his own penalty area. The ball hit him directly in the hand and Leicester City should have gotten a penalty. Its true that it was unintentional handball, but it was a handball for which penalties are given.

It was a bad decision by the referee, as the hand was in unnatural position, so it was a clear penalty.
If VAR would exist in the Premier League, than Leicester City would (probably) be winning this match 1-2 instead of only drawing.
Who knows, Leicester might won this match, but now they might even lose this match.
Its still very early to know what’s gonna happen. There’s still second half ahead and anything can happen, but Leicester City have been hard done by this decision.
