This Joel Ward handball vs Everton was a controversial moment, with the Toffees being awarded a penalty that was converted by Richarlison. Palace fans felt it was a harsh call, arguing Ward had very little time to take his hand out of the way. Nevertheless, it was awarded after a VAR check and Richarlison converted to make it 2-1

Ward was involved in another case of potential handball a few minutes ago, but that penalty wasn’t given.

Another controversial incident was this Havertz handball for the Abraham Chelsea equaliser against WBA, but that went in favour of CFC.
