Leicesters march to a remarkable Premier League title win goes on - but have Claudio Ranieris side been fortunate in recent weeks with refereeing decisions? Wes Morgan, Danny Simpson and Robert Huth (twice) have had the ball strike their arm in the Leicester penalty box in the past two months, without a spot-kick being awarded against them. Lee Nguyen Jersey .At the other end, the Foxes have been awarded 10 penalties - the most in the Premier League and four more than any other side. In fact, Jamie Vardy alone (six) has been awarded more penalties than 18 Premier League teams.Former top-flight referee Dermot Gallagher analyses the weekends key decisions on Sky Sports News HQ every Monday morning.Here, he takes a closer look at some recent big calls in Leicesters Premier League fixtures and delivers his verdict on whether theyve had the rub of the green…MATCH: Sunderland 0-2 Leicester, April 10  Sunderlands DeAndre Yedlin challenges Leicesters Shinji Okazaki INCIDENT 1: Marc Albrighton plays a diagonal ball over the Sunderland defence which Shinji Okazaki races on to. As the ball sails over the defence, DeAndre Yedlin attempts to clear but misses the ball and catches Okazaki in the chest. Referee Anthony Taylor decides not to award Leicester a penalty.GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Incorrect decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: I think its a foul and a penalty. I dont think the referee realises what has happened. Yedlin had caught Okazaki in the chest and he is not near the ball. Anthony doesnt see it like that, but the penalty should have been given. INCIDENT 2: Sunderlands Patrick van Aanholt fires in a low cross which strikes Leicester defender Robert Huth on the arm as he slides in to make a challenge. The referee decides not to point to the spot.GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: The cross strikes Huths hand not the other way around, so its definitely not a penalty. Huth cant cut his arm off, its there and he was just going to ground. His arms have to go somewhere and that is what you would call a natural position.MATCH: Leicester 1-0 Southampton, April 3  INCIDENT 1: Southamptons Sadio Mane is clean through on goal, rounds goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, but has a goal-bound shot blocked by Leicesters Danny Simpson. Handball was not given. GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: It has to be intentional, and not be committed. It wouldve hit his chest. But I think the rule has got to be more prescriptive, it has got to be, This is handball or This isnt handball. INCIDENT 2: Southamptons Charlie Austin plays a low cross in the area which strikes Huth on the arm, but the referee gives Southampton a corner rather than a spot-kick.GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: The ball has come from a short distance and it has come at speed, theres no doubt about that. Can he get his hand out the way? Im not convinced he can. INCIDENT 3: Wes Morgan rises above Jordy Clasie to head in Christian Fuchs cross to score, but the Leicester captain appeared to put his arm across the Dutchman while contending for the ball.GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: Michael Oliver has a great view of it. He can see what force he puts into it. I dont think its a foul. INCIDENT 4: Very early on in the second half, Victor Wanyama miscontrols the ball, Jamie Vardy pounces on it and is dragged back with what appeared to be an arm across the face. A yellow card is given, but should it have been a red?GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: Hes on his shoulder to start with. Its a pull-back and Michael has got that right. Hes very clever to realise the first touch is to take the ball away and not panicking and giving a red card.MATCH: Crystal Palace 0-1 Leicester, March 19 INCIDENT: A Leicester corner is taken and Scott Dann pulls Robert Huths shirt off in the penalty box. The referee gives nothing.GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: The referee is too distant from the incident. He has so much to watch, hes looking through so many players he cant see that. MATCH: Leicester 2-2 West Brom, March 1 INCIDENT: With Leicester 1-0 down, Danny Drinkwater scores an equaliser but West Broms Stephane Sessegnon is booked after the goal for his reaction to a challenge by Foxes full-back Christian Fuchs in the build-up.GALLAGHERS VERDICT:  Foul: Incorrect decision. Reaction: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: My first reaction when I saw it was no foul [by Fuchs]. When you see it again from a different angle, its definitely a foul. Its a yellow card at least, bordering on a red card. Hes [Sessegnon] berated the official too much. Mark Clattenburg has backed the assistant, and the assistant thinks it wasnt a foul.MATCH: Leicester 1-0 Norwich, February 27 INCIDENT: With this Premier League encounter finely poised, Cameron Jerome curls an effort at goal. The ball appears to hit Wes Morgan on the arm in the penalty area. Nothing is given.GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: It cant be given. It is not deliberate, hes turned away and it has hit him.  Also See: Typical Leicester?

On Mar. 16, coming off a "fight of the year" performance at UFC 154 the previous November, St-Pierre faced Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in what would be his eighth defence of the welterweight title. Using his superior athleticism, St-Pierre cruised to a five round, unanimous decision victory setting up a much-anticipated title defence against number one contender Johny Hendricks. AUBURN, Ala. -- Daniel Carlson knows hell miss a field goal at some point.It just hasnt happened in a while for the player who has emerged as the surest bet on Auburns team, a kicker who supplied all of the Tigers scoring in a much-needed win over LSU.Carlson tied an Auburn and Southeastern Conference record with six field goals in that 18-13 victory and hasnt missed in 12 attempts this season, plus his final one last season. That 13-kick streak puts him three marks shy of his own school record 16 in a row set last season. He has been the biggest bright spot on a team that is 2-2 entering Saturdays game with Louisiana-Monroe (1-2) and has drawn an unusual amount of attention for a kicker.Its been a lot of fun, but Im just a part of this team, Carlson said. I know my role is just to help out this team, and its a role that I can be the hero or the goat. If I keep making kicks, it goes well. But once I start missing kicks, people are going to question, `Hey, whats he doing? Thats why I enjoy it. There is a lot of pressure, but that makes it exciting. When you do well, that makes it really fun.In that case, hes having a blast this season.A Lou Groza Award finalist as a sophomore last season, Carlson has missed only once in his last 30 attempts. He even ran for a touchdown on a fake field goal against Arkansas State.Carlson has been especially important to Auburn because the offense has struggled to reach the end zone, and also because the Tigers dont have to get all that close for Carlson to have a good shot at three points.He has seven career fiield goals of 50 yards or more, including a 53-yarder this season against Clemson and a 51-yarder in the LSU game. John Brooks USA Jersey. Carlson has missed only once from that range.Hes a game-changer. Hes a weapon, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. Youve got confidence to let him kick it 50-plus. Theres not a whole lot of coaches that have that luxury.Carlsons last 17 kickoffs have resulted in touchbacks -- and one fumbled attempt to field it by a photographer behind the end zone against LSU that made the rounds on social media.Dont try to catch his kicks, Malzahn advised.The coach said he might let Carlson attempt a 60-yarder at some point this season. Carlson said hes made a couple of 70-yarders at home in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and in practice at Auburn.He wound up at Auburn in a roundabout way. His parents attended the University of Alabama and his grandparents live in Trussville, outside Birmingham, and steadfastly root for the Crimson Tide, though Carlson says theyll come and cheer for me every once in a while.My dad came over from Sweden. I didnt want to stay in Colorado, Carlson said. They ended up living in Colorado just because they couldnt figure out whether to live in Europe or Alabama. I grew up watching SEC football. When I got in contact with Auburn and visited, I just fell in love with it.If he hadnt, Auburn would be in much worse shape this season.---AP college football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
