We don't have the same protection United and Liverpool get. 

Ex ref Dermot Gallagher said in the week before the Pulisic incident that the refs have set a precedent that if any part of the player is on the line when fouled it's a penalty (Due to the Bergwijn incident and another).  I thought Pulisic's leading foot was on the line but his back leg got the contact.

I think the penalty was rightly overturned and it was a yellow rather than a red. 

But what pisses me off is how for such a cynical foul, we don't get more reward. It was CM's away from being a penalty - so close the ref originally gave it. But although it was correctly overturned, the resulting free-kick was one of those that is too close to the goal and so the benefit was lost. I think in those situations, the team should be given the option to move the free-kick back to at least give them a better chance. I know it wasn't a great take by Mount but when they are that close to the goal, with the wall 10 yards away, players rarely get them up & over so moving it back 10 yards should be an option.

Not that we deserved anything from the game!
