Watford's Abdoulaye Doucoure scores equaliser against Southampton with hand

  • Southampton star Alex Mc Carthy insists Mauricio Pellegrino‚Äôs job is in safe hands

It was possible to make a case for saying Doucore's action had been inadvertent rather than deliberate but not as far as Martin Keown was concerned, with the BBC pundit saying the Watford man had "done a (Diego) Maradona" - a reference to the football great's blatant handball that helped Argentina knock England out of the 1986 World Cup on the South Americans' way to lifting the trophy.

"If VAR had come in, we probably wouldn't get that but today we got it. It's the luck of the draw".

However, referee Roger East and linesman Derek Eaton either missed Doucore's action completely or were happy to let the goal stand as scored.

"My feeling is like the players, we are a little bit sad", he said.

"I never see this type of mistake in the Premier League before".

Video assistant referees are being trialled in domestic cup competitions over the next few months, beginning with the FA Cup third-round tie between Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace earlier this week, but a frustrated Pellegrino now wants to see it rolled out in the English top flight.

"I won't speak to the referee". They are not 100 per cent but tomorrow I think they will be part of the team in training. "It's something that can happen".

Villarreal's first-ever win at Bernabeu
They have 32 points after 18 games which is the same total as in 2005-2006 which ended in a year without trophies for Real. Just what is happening to this side in the dressing room? Still the comparison doesn't look good for Zidane.


A first-half double from James Ward-Prowse had put the Saints in the driving seat, but Andre Gray cut the deficit early in the second half and Doucoure got the leveller at the death, appearing to use his hand to do so.

But there was nobody there to save Silva's side when Long burst down the left to pick out Tadic, who in turn laid on a simple finish for Ward-Prowse.

A long ball found Daryl Janmaat in the area and he crashed a shot off the crossbar.

Then came the late drama which prevented Watford from slipping to a seventh defeat in their last eight matches. At St James' Park, Carvalhal was left wondering if Swansea had been deprived of two crucial points by a first-half decision when a handball from Newcastle's Mohamed Diame in his own box appeared to be missed by officials.

"We didn't play with the right mentality or attitude in the first half".

Premier League managers calling more urgently for its introduction after two highly contentious decisions. "It's an important moment for us".
