    Apparently Werner is starting.... probably on the right hand side..... would like to see Abraham to start upfront.

    Yeah Tammy seems to have been forgotten with Havertz playing the false 9

    Say goodbye to your starting place for England Benneth.
    Faith in Timo! Tuchel gambling on him to make him look a genius?

    Extra buttery hot cross buns in the Allardyce household if he can get one over another highly rated coach from Germany.

    Borderline red that. A little fortunate to only be booked.

    Come on mate. Yellow card was the correct decision.

    I did say borderline.. I think it could have gone either way.

    He's in on goal and is dragged back by Silva, no attempt to play the ball.

    Silva's probably close enough that it's not a clear cut goalscoring opportunity but he's taken a bit of a risk.

    If was in the area where you could image a ref making a right balls up of a decision and giving a red card incorrectly but that’s not borderline for me.

    There’s two defenders there plus the keeper, the attached doesn’t have full control of the ball and the pull back was very soft.

    I think it's a soft foul for what it's worth and probably didn't even need making given the positioning of all involved but once the ref gives it I think it could easily be seen as a red.

    Yellow's probably just about right but I imagine WBA will feel hard done by there and gives Allardyce something to moan about later.

    This is why VAR in an absolute nightmare to manage. Too many people looking for fouls and overthinking it.

    I think its harsh. Dont think he even caught the player and if he did it wasn't with the studs showing. Caught him with his shin maybe. The player also got his shot away

    Werner was caught in a similar way earlier but it was in the box so nothing was given.
