    Silly from Pepe to do a headbutt in the era of VAR. Any kind of headbutt is a straight red card, even if the contact is minimal.

    Mr Pepe paying tribute to his Portuguese namesake with that headbutt!

    Theatrical reaction from Alioski, but would VAR have noticed the incident if he hadn’t fallen down like that?
