Was Jota offside in his injury time winner? That plonker Macanally was 'livid' and said it shouldn't have been allowed. Not sure of the offside law in this case.

Agree0 Disagree0

Under the old rules, Jota was offside, however the new rules state that he was onside as when Neves played the ball out to Jimenez, Jota was not interfering with play (phase 1). Once Jimenez had the ball, Jota was onside again (phase 2), therefore the goal was legit.

My interpretation of the offside rule is where a player is when the ball is played. When Raul played the ball Jota was definateley onside, or is there some other ruling that I'm missing?

No clearly onside.

It depends whether the Referee considered him to be "active" at the time Neves passed the ball. He did not, so it's a goal. End of. I have to say the old offside rule was better, but the current one applies so go and cry in your beer Shilton and MacInally. Bet you wouldn't be complaining if it had been a Leicester goal.

Don't hear them moaning about Chilwell's foul on jonny in the build up to the 2nd goal - they should just do what everyone else does and get on with it.

And the foul on Dendoncker for their third goal and the push by Johnny Evans on Jota just before the ladt goal.

Jas M has got it dead right. Me and my mates all think it's a bad law and should be changed back, but until it is, its what it is.

Did they complain about the red card to Boly as well?
If the fullback was letting Jota get that far behind him, it's his fault. I guess that is one of the problems with zonal coverage.

If the defender who Jota beat was even with Jimenez when he had the ball and passed it, then he would have also been even with Jota. He shouldn't have let Jimenez get that far in front of him.
He should have been back helping the guy watching Jimenez.
