Does Pochettino think there are three cards in football? Red, yellow, and …?

Tottenham Hotspur went some way to stopping the rot in the Premier League today as they scraped a draw against Arsenal at Wembley.

Spurs came into the game off the back of two straight defeats to Burnley and Chelsea, knowing that a loss to their bitter North London rivals would seriously threaten their top four spot.

A draw doesn’t make the situation too much better for the Lilywhites, but it certainly keeps them four points above Arsenal for the time being.

It was a full-blooded affair at the national stadium too, with both teams going all out to win the game.

There were two penalties late on, as well as a red card, and plenty of opportunities for more potential sendings off through the tie.

Torreira was dismissed for a studs up challenge on Danny Rose, but Rose could have seen red himself a little earlier for a high kick on goalkeeper Leno.

Davinson Sanchez was also seen kicking out at Koscielny, and Granit Xhaka was lucky not to see a card of some description early on for a nasty challenge on Kane.

Poch thought the latter was a turning point, but got a little mixed up with how many cards there are in football (Football London): “Because it wasn’t even a foul and it should have been yellow, amber or even red, but it wasn’t even a foul.”

Have something to tell us about this article?
