Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp rages at ref Paul Tierney for two decisions in Tottenham draw | Football | Sport


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was furious with referee Paul Tierney after seeing his side drop two points following their 2-2 draw with Tottenham on Sunday. Tierney failed to send Harry Kane off for a horror tackle on Andy Robertson in the first half before denying Diogo Jota a penalty after the forward was bundled over by Emerson Royal.

Liverpool were later reduced to 10 men after Robertson was dismissed for taking a wild lash at Royal’s legs with 13 minutes of the match remaining.

“Yes definitely,” Klopp hissed after being asked if Kane should have been sent off.

“You can give Robbo a red card. It is not the smartest challenge but that is definitely a red card. No doubt about it.

“His leg was in the air, it was pure coincidence. Harry cannot judge it. If Robbo’s leg is on the ground it is a broken leg.

“We have a VAR sitting there and he thinks have a look again at Robertson again. Fine – that’s what he is there for.

After viewing the incident on the VAR screen, Tierney brandished the red card after deeming the tackle as violent conduct.

Both teams searched for a winner, but the spoils were eventually shared in north London.

The draw means Liverpool now find themselves three points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City.

The Citizens thrashed Newcastle 4-0 earlier on Sunday to extend their lead at the top of the table.

Fellow title rivals Chelsea, meanwhile, also dropped points as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Wolves.
