I've noticed that in the recent European matches where a penalty is given for handball invariably a YC is given as well but in the Premier League there is often not a YC. Why is this?

This is not the technically correct answer, but it very much looks to me as a means of justifying the handball decision.  Given that many of the penalty kicks awarded for handball are - by most sensible definitions - not intentional acts; the caution is a warning not to commit a further accidental "offence".  It is effectively saying:  "I know you did not mean to do that, but don't do it again".

The handball in City vs Leipzig being a YC is ridiculous. Itís a YC for blocking a shot at goal yet the handball has zero Impact on the ball. Do that twice and your off 😂😂😂
