MOMENT OF THE WEEKEND: Naughty Joey Barton

Joey Barton and controversy are never too far away from each other. To say that the former England international has a hot streak may be putting it lightly as he got a little lucky on Saturday afternoon.

The midfielder left his leg on a challenge against Biram Kayal, which looked both at full speed and in slow motion like he’d intentionally landed his boot on the Brighton player’s leg. He then collided with the same player, leading with his arm but on a closer replay, that was more of an incidental move.

It added to a fiery top-of-the-table encounter that more than impressed again. However, with the referee reporting the incident as being seen by the officials, no further punishment will be dealt when really Barton should have been reprimanded for having a little naughty moment.
