    David Luiz may as well just retire now if that was the case.

    But then you're potentially reviewing 50% of challenges made per game.
    I think it's fine that they are going to review incidents that actually changed the direction of the game.
    Going over on the half-way line isn't likely to result in a free-kick that someone scores from, or results in a red card etc.
    If you want to go down the avenue of every suspect dive in a game, because it "might" have some sort of outcome, then you need to review every incident where a team scores a goal from a corner that should be a goal kick...

    Some of the papers are suggesting that Richarlison might be looked at for his part in winning the penalty against Arsenal. I haven't seen it yet - was it a dive?

    I guess so, he went down easy but sometimes we forget players move at such lightning speed that a slight touch can knock them off balance. Therefore it can appear that a player went down easy, and in Richarlison's case there was slight contact.

    I think it would be harsh to ban him, there's certainly much much worse cases. Alli against Huddersfield for example.

    Richarlison looks quite a good player btw. Only 20. Very formative moment for him - a lot of dazzling looking young Brazilians fail to push on at that age. England is probably a good place for him to be in that regard.

    Deeney sort of summed this up on Saturday evening.
    He said he thought at the time that Richarlison was clipped, and that because he's so lightweight and nippy, it doesn't take much to take him down in full flight.

    The papers want a story and are whipping up a controversy.

    On the incident I would say it was a penalty, knee to knee contact was made and I've seen softer ones than that given.

    If it had been the other way round there wouldn't be any discussion. It's only because it lead to Arsenal losing that the media can't leave it alone.
