I don't think I agree with that red card decision. I do agree with the penalty decision.

Nice debut for Martinez though, saving the penalty.

I think it's just about right.

Can see why it's given and not enough to be overturned.

Both grappling with each other but Egan does a bit too much than Watkins does the other way, therefore Watkins is impeded/obstructed more so. 

The penalty was correct and well spotted.

I think it should have been overturned - but I think Egan and Watkins were pulling and grabbing about the same tbh, and the VAR could confirm they were shoulder-to-shoulder/side-to-side (which to me, should be the biggest issue with this decision). I don't think there's anything wrong with that, I think it's a very harsh red card.

I wouldn't have been happy if we'd had a player sent off for that, that's all I'll say.

Delighted for Martinez saving that penalty. As for the red, I think it's a crazy decision.
