A game dominated from start to finish by City and the ref was well in control of this game.

The only problem on the field was De Jongh. He did what he is good at making dangerous tackles and the ref didn’t notice it. Or he did notice it and gave a foul but didn’t give the well deserved card. It cost him some points.

If take a look at the bias we can see that most of the wrong calls were in favour of Aston Villa. But if we give the weight on the decisions we see that the bias is 55/45 in favour of the home team and this is a rather balanced outcome.

So all in all a good performance from the ref and with not much bias in it.
