Well, we said there would be plenty of Premier League drama and things have not slowed down this Saturday.

Graham Potter’s first league clash in charge of Chelsea has had some controversy on the pitch due to an interesting decision from Thiago Silva.

Palace players called for a red card against the Brazilian after he appeared to handle the ball but VAR opted not to send him off.

To make matters worse for Crystal Palace fans, moments later Silva was down at the other end of the field providing the assist for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s equaliser.

Was it the right call?
