Newcastle lost 1-0 to Brighton, but two controversialSBOBET incidents overshadowed the Nissan Super Sunday clash.
In what was a tight contest at the Amex, the build-up to Tomer Hemed's 51st-minute goal and an alleged stamp on DeAndre Yedlin raised two standout talking points from the Premier League game.
Sky Sports pundits Graeme Souness and Thierry Henry had their opinions on each incident, while managers Chris Hughton and Rafael Benitez were asked for their views post-match.
INCIDENT: In the 51st minute, Tomer Hemed scored Brighton's decisive goal as he hooked Dale Stephens' pegged-back header into the roof of the net. But was Newcastle defender Chancel Mbemba blocked off in the build-up following the original free-kick swung in by Pascal Gross?
SOUNESS: "It's one of those, we've all been there when it works for you and we've all been there when it works against you. No-one has tried to create that seed of doubt in the referee's mind and that's the first thing you do."
HENRY: "None of the Newcastle players are arguing, making the job easy for the referee. Yes, you could have called for a foul because when you look at it again it's difficult to argue that it's not a foul.
"You don't want players to surround the referee and put himSBOBET under pressure, but if you don't question it as the team that concedes the goal, what should the referee do?"
BENITEZ: "I'm frustrated. We did some good things, they had chances, we had chances. We're disappointed because the goal is a foul, and the referee had a very good position (to see). For me the goal was a foul for blocking. It's so clear but you cannot change the decision."
HUGHTON: "What you saw is what you see in every game. It wasn't a foul, it was what you see in matches. Hemed had a lot of work to do and it was a great finish."
INCIDENT: In the 89th minute, Hemed appeared to stamp on Yedlin but the referee did not see it. No card was issued.
SOUNESS: "For me, he's had a good look and I think he knowsSBOBET exactly what he's doing. It would have been very easy to put his foot down somewhere else.
"I think it might come back to bite him. What is he, 30 years old? He's not a boy. It's something he shouldn't be doing but in the heat of the moment he's got it wrong. He has a good look, he could easily put his foot on the grass."
HENRY: "The bigger picture is that if anything happens to him, if someone reviews that, then he will be a massive loss."
BENITEZ: "I didn't see it [the stamp]. I didn't see this game as a tough game with a lot of bad tackles."
