EPL Penalty Rule Change Remains at balance

New rules that could be introduced in the Premier League and Champions League were under the spotlight at the 133rd annual general meeting of the International Football Association Board (IFAB) this weekend.

But one of those that was NOT was the suggestion that a penalty that is saved or hits the post would see play stop dead.

On Monday it was suggested that the IFAB has decided to change the penalty law for efforts that are either repelled by the goalkeeper or strike the woodwork and stay in play.

As such, tap ins would be a thing of the past and so too would defenders looking to rush into the penalty area.
