Chaos match in the Premier League: “Of course it’s red”

Four goals, a red card and hot emotions.

Most of it happened when Tottenham played 2-2 against Liverpool.

Harry Kane has not been recognized during the autumn and faced today’s match against Liverpool on only one league goal that came on October 17.

Today he broke his goal drought. After 13 minutes, he got a good deep lead pass and Kane pushed the lead goal in the far corner.

And Tottenham, who had not played a match since December 5, when nine players in the squad had the corona, seemed addicted to the game.

They had two superb chances to extend the lead, first when Heung-Min Son was clean in the penalty area but shot outside. Then when Dele Alli thought he had scored but Alisson got his fingertips on the ball.

– It is an enormously good rescue, says Niva.

“Of course it’s red”

In between, Harry Kane could very well have been expelled. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving.

– It is clear that it is a red card, says Sportbladet’s Erik Niva in Viaplay.

After the match, Kane said it was not a red card.

– It was a strong tackle, I won the ball, he says in Viaplay.

Instead, Liverpool took over more and more and after 35 minutes came the equalizer when Diogo Jota scored a post to 1-1, his tenth goal of the season.

Liverpool then wanted a penalty when Jota collapsed but the referee waved a deflection to Jürgen Klopp’s great anger which resulted in a yellow card.

Robertson and center

In the second half, most of it would be about Liverpool’s Andy Robertson. After 70 minutes, Dele Alli came in from the right, feinted, then sped past the off-balance defender to make the score 1 – 0, giving Liverpool the lead.

There, they were finally able to nod Andy Robertsson in 2-1 from close range, which made the Tottenham players protest strongly as they thought that there should have been a penalty in the situation before. But the judge stood by his decision and the case was approved.

Andy Robertson would receive a red card five minutes later. After a short tussle with the defender, Emerson finally tucked the ball home. But after VAR review, he changed his decision and gave a red card.

– Harry Kane’s tackle was more red card than it was for Andy Robertson, says Erik Niva.

Rough painting by Alisson

In between, Tottenham had equalized when Alisson made a super board. The brass timed an equipment completely wrong and Heung-Min Son put the equalizer in the open goal.

With ten men, it was Tottenham who pressed hardest for a victory but the match ended 2-2. After the match was

After the match, Jürgen Klopp was noticeably annoyed.

– Giving Robertson a red card is okay, that’s how it works. But Kane should also have received a red card, so the question is why we look at the situation with Robertson but not look at it with Kane or the penalty situation with Jota, he says.
