The game of the fourteenth round of the English Premier League between Manchester City and Tottenham had to please the fans with developments. In the first ten minutes, Son Heung-min scored in both the other's and his own goal, making the score 1-1. Man City took the lead twice before the end of the game, but Spurs equalized twice. As a result, it was a 3-3 draw.

Already in the added time of the second half, one of the key episodes of the game took place: City striker Jack Grealish was running out to meet the goalkeeper, but referee Simon Hooper unexpectedly blew the whistle for an infringement of the rules, which was earlier.

What is interesting is that Hooper initially reached for the whistle, but still allowed play to continue.

However, already in the final phase of the development of the episode, he stopped the attack and awarded a foul.

Manchester City players did not understand such a decision from the referee and demanded explanations from him. One of the most emotional was Norwegian forward Erling Haaland, who even changed his face when he addressed the referee.

This is not the first time Simon Hooper has been caught up in a scandal this season. Earlier, Liverpool fans accused the referee of bias in the match against Tottenham on the last day of September 2023.
