If you kick someone's foot outside the area and they dive 10 feet to get into it. It's not a penalty.
The foul was commited outside and Raphina fell in.

Well when you kick someone you general make contact and cease making contact instantly, so the foul is a split second event.

When you grab someone, my interpretation of the foul is: the foul commences when you make the illegal contact and the foul ceases when you disengage in the contact.

Given he grabbed him outside the area, then released him inside the area, I think the foul finished in the area. Penalty.

Totally different examples you are citing. It has nothing to do with Raphinha and how he fell, but when the Palace defender ceased grabbing him

Did some reading I was wrong. I was certain that wasn't that case

The foul was commited outside and Raphina fell in.
But he didn’t commit the foul and then Raph fell into the area, he was still holding him.
