Definitely come to the conclusion that VAR is only there to check decisions that favour Pool, Manu, City and Chelsea.

When Cash fell on the ball and stopped it with both his hands in the penalty are when Rico would have been clean through, can't understand why that wasn't reviewed unless they did look but thought no, it doesn't favour the bigger team so move on.

Why a headless chicken? It is in Rico too naturally track the wider man, yea In hindsight he simply should have closed him down but doesn't mean he would have prevented the goal or stop Buendia laying the ball off to Matty Cash who would have been free to score. The problem was both Ethan & Rico should have sorted it out who was going to pick up Buendia before the ball came to him.
I do not blame Rico alone, and headles chicken was inside quotation marks as I did not know better way to put it.

I wrote he or Pinnock should have marked Buendia... neither did, they did not mark anyone to be precise.

CN was too deep for this IMHO. He's between the six yard line and penalty spot when the strike is made.

He's dragged out of position, but no one covers it off and it's disappointing to see 3 players all static, none of them attempt to get out to the ball. I think in hindsight, CN should be looking to cover that space and pass on his man, but I'm not a professional footballer so who knows about that 😅

CN was marking Chukwuemeka before the pass to Buendia. Not sure where he should have been but you are probably right that CN was too deep... I think, as I wrote earlier, Henry and Pinnock, and CN too, were too deep, around 12 yards from our goal.
