Former English Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher has shared his opinion on an incident involving Erling Haaland and Jordan Pickford during Manchester City’s recent 3-0 victory over Everton.

In the second half of the match at Goodison Park, there was a collision between the two players as they contested the ball in the air, resulting in Pickford making contact with Haaland’s head.

The on-field referee allowed play to continue, and VAR did not intervene. Gallagher expressed his views on the incident during the latest edition of Sky Sports’ Ref Watch.

“The referee has the best view, and once the referee says no penalty on the field, which I think is right, the VAR’s not going to overrule that,” he said.

“I feel Haaland does as much as Pickford. If he sides with the goalkeeper, you’d say they always back the goalkeeper. He has three choices – free-kick to Pickford, penalty to Haaland, or play on. He took the third choice,” Gallagher added.
