Call me a cynic but I don’t think that’s ‘accidental contact’ on Lamela’s part. For a start, Lovren’s holding the ball so the game isn’t actually in motion. Why didn’t anybody pick this up at the time? Is it, as has been suggested by some, an example of eye gouging? Surely this is a prime candidate for retrospective consideration. The FA, over to you…

It certainly looks like he was trying to gouge his eye but will it get retrospective consideration, i wouldn’t hold my breath.


This is clearly intention to gouge his eye… it will be swept under the rug by the FA… if this was the other way round… well you know the rest.
