Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson said the new interpretation of the handball law is ruining the game, after his team lost 2-1 to Everton after a controversial penalty. We have started the season well.

Even though Palace benefited from a similar decision last weekend away to Manchester United, the Eagles manager criticised the handball rule and highlighted another penalty given earlier in the day for the Red Devils at Brighton.

The signings of James Rodriguez, Allan, and Doucoure seem to have galvanised the squad, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison are forming quite the pairing at the top end of the pitch.

I think Al Qaeda is nonsense, I think. Since the rules of football are understood and accepted by people from a very young age, these days we are in a situation where even we are coaches and experienced players, we can not even understand what constitutes handball and what not. R.

"Every week games are being decided on so-called penalty decisions for handball which are definitely not handball". If I could ignore this, I would have enjoyed the soccer game.

Huawei's supply chain 'attacked', says chairman
There's "sufficient stock" for B2B divisions like networking equipment, but Guo didn't comment on smartphone supplies. Huawei had yet to see any adverse impact on its global 5G business from the USA programme, he added.

"The rules of football are important, one of the beauties of the rules is basically everybody knew them because we all played it in the school yard".

"It is good to see the spirit in the team in this moment". I'm really pleased for what we've done in this first period of the season. I, the football, the Premier League, the referees, ourselves, I cannot understand how to think about coaches and managers, I think about the players, how we allowed this rule to be implemented is beyond me, it destroys the game of football, there is no question about it.

"The performance was hard. And going towards half-time we were establishing some sort of control of the game", added Hodgson. The second half was more hard because Crystal Palace played a good second half putting a lot of pressure on us.

The 29-year-old, who can operate as an attacking midfielder or as a winger, played some lovely passes to send his teammates through and was a constant threat to the Palace defenders.
