| sbobet8888 The Man United defender was given a booking for bringing Eden Hazard down. Phil Jones may have given away the penalty to hand Chelsea a dream start in the FA Cup final, but the Manchester United defender can count himself lucky - thanks to a rule change.
The United centre back hauled down Eden Hazard in the box in the 21st minute, leading referee Michael Oliver to point to the spot. But despite being the last man and denying Chelsea a goal scoring opportunity, Jones was only shown a yellow card.
The decision led to many viewers questioning whether the referee had got it badly wrong - but thanks to a recent rule change from the International Football Association Board (IFAB), the outcome was correct. sbobet8888
As of 2016, players who commit a foul to deny a goalscoring opportunity will no longer automatically be sent off. The previous 'triple-punishment' rule required a red card - and therefore a suspension - as well as the award of a penalty under circumstances. However, players committing accidental fouls that deny a goalscoring chance are now cautioned instead - as Jones was.
But deliberate fouls will still incur a red card. Those include holding, pulling or pushing, not playing the ball, serious foul play, violent conduct or deliberate handball in order to deny a goalscoring opportunity. The penalty incident at Wembley still left many fans bemused - here is some of the best reaction on social media. sbobet8888
