In the 32nd minute of the match, Che Adams had a dangerous shot to beat goalkeeper David De Gea, opening the score for Southampton. Looking back at the slow motion phase, the ball touched Fred and changed direction, and the goal was counted by the Man United midfielder’s own goal.

But it is worth noting that in the previous situation, Bruno Fernandes was robbed by Jack Stephens and it looked like a foul. After the ball was brought into the net from his own loss, Bruno complained to referee Craig Pawson but to no avail. He even got a yellow card for his reaction error.

And that’s the new Premier League rule this year on fouls. Specifically, ambiguous collision situations will not be counted, and the game will continue. Chief Referee Mike Riley confirmed the following pre-season: “The referee team and VAR will not intervene in insignificant foul situations.”

The reason the Premier League changed this rule, in addition to the bolder offside line, was because the match was interrupted a lot with unclear situations. For example, Raheem Sterling’s fall in the EURO 2020 semi-final and earned a penalty for England. It’s a positive change in the new season, with the aim of making football less prone to VAR interference.
