That.

And every commentator so far has called out Smith for immediately crying to the ref. If the ref sees it and decides to issue a card, that’s one thing. But Smith got one over not only on Richarlison, but on the ref, too.

Then why not push him away with his hands?

He definitely got one over them but its what he was trying to do. That applies below too.

Are you serious???  Tried to harm him? His head was touching. There was no impact it was a shove away. It happens 100s of times a season. Smith cheated simple as

They both did the same damn thing though. Smith led with his head. Fuck him off too.

Difference being Richarlison pushed his head into him after the initial contact between the two.

Smith gets his comeuppence. Great ball from Pickford and Walcott lures him into the challenge!

He tapped him... no harmful intent.

Not necessarily a man of the match performance so far, but a clear 'I'm by far the most talented player in this stadium today' performance by Pickford by the way. 

It might be man of the match as well after that save.

I disagree. Why sharply push you head forward and down? Is it not concievable that such a movement could cause some pain to a person? Its a letter of the law red and I fail to see how people can argue it.

This is such an encouraging match. Last year this exact same side would have put their heads down and moped about after a red. This season, they reacted to the injustice and played even harder, just as they did at Wolves in the first week. Whatever that handsome Portuguese devil is saying to them, I love it.

Bailey, he barely moved his head forward... this is nowhere near a zidane level headbutt.
