In the E.P.L match between Chelsea and Cardiff City , Cardiff City were leading Chelsea team one love at one time. But then Samuel Eto'o was involved in a big controversial incident. The Cardiff City goalkeeper David Marshall. David Marshall was bouncing the ball legally according to F.I.F.A rule , as long as the goalkeeper has control over the ball when he is bouncing the ball, a opponent can not nipp the ball.But here Samuel Eto'o nipped the ball and passed it with his head to Eden Hazard , who scored the goal in the 33rd minute. Here both Samuel Eto'o and Eden Hazard were guilty of being partners in crime. And Anthony Taylor and the linesmen are guilty of not knowing the rules and should be demoted as referees and linesmen. A former referee George Courtney , says a fowl was committed and a free kick should have been awarded to Cardiff City. It clearly shows us that big clubs like Chelsea are always favoured.
