Should Harry Kane have been sent off in the first half of Tottenham vs Liverpool? There’s a strong argument in favour of the prosecution…
Kane made his mark after 13 minutes of the contest, slotting home past Alisson Becker after a fine through ball from Tanguy Ndombele.
Having netted his second Premier League goal of the season and thus sent a message to his critics, Kane clearly had the adrenaline flowing through his veins.
The England captain went into a challenge with Liverpool’s Andy Robertson a little overeager, leaving his studs on the Scotsman’s shin.
The on-field decision was to award a yellow card, with VAR suggesting no further action, but the replays confirmed just how nasty the tackle was from Kane.
You wonder how the VAR official could have watched these replays and made the decision NOT to suggest a pitchside review.
It’s a shocker – and it’s a red card every day of the week!
Should Harry Kane have been sent off?
Should Liverpool have had a penalty?
