We all know there’s more to the rules that a player simply winning the ball or not.
There was a strange moment in the Liverpool vs Chelsea game tonight as the ref gave a free kick against Kovacic, but then he kept telling the Chelsea man that he won the ball:

You have to think that this must be taken out of context and the ref is about to say something else after that, but it’s a strange thing to see.
