    Seems Scott is being given a chance to prove he’s up to it by Riley. Will watch with interest.

    That’s the worrying thing, just how far does he have to go to secure his future

    In the (recent) past, there has been concern about the diving (simulation) taking place in the EPL. Enough so, that it was made possible to charge a player with simulation after the fact (Successful Deception of a Match Official).

    It is possible for a treatment to be an act of deception, and yet none of those 85 treatments was thought to involve deception (as near as I can tell). So, if all 85 treatments were situations where a player was involved in a collision of some kind (not necessarily with a player) that required, why has only 1 involved a card?

    We know that one of those treatments involved serious injury, as Maitland-Niles is out with a broken fibula. More than half of the treatments were required by the home team. If the officials feel pressured by a home crowd, why did they not feel pressured 46 times this season to issue a card (a card was issued once to Southampton)?

    Only Home: Marriner, Scott, Mason, Tierney
    Only Away: Atkinson, Moss, Taylor
