Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Ryan Mason has expressed his disbelief at referee Michael Oliver’s decision not to award a penalty against Leicester City.
Heung-min Son was brought down in the Foxes penalty area following an outstretched leg making contact with the Spurs player, but staggeringly, the referee decided to penalise the South Korean instead.
Mason took to Twitter to criticise Oliver and instead claimed that the only person who is guilty of cheating is Harry Maguire for implying that Son dived.
With every point being vital to Tottenham’s hope of keeping the pressure on Liverpool and Manchester City in the title race, hopefully Oliver’s awful refereeing does not end up costing us dearly.
Meanwhile, Liverpool continue to get the rub of the green with questionable offside decisions in numerous Premier League matches.
Thankfully, Spurs lead 1-0 at the half time break courtesy of a header from Davinson Sanchez just after the half hour mark.
It’s a pen. The only player guilty of simulation there was the defender for claiming there was no contact & implying Son cheated. https://t.co/KMB52CFDnm
