Graham Roberts has claimed that there referees have a vendetta against Tottenham Hotspur.
Roberts made the claim after Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-2 draw against Arsenal where the lilywhites were denied two penalties through separate incidents involving Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
The former Spurs defender believes that since Mauricio Pochettino was involved in a war of words with Mike Dean following a defeat to Burnley in February, referees have been against the club.
The 60-year-old has suggested that the referees have got together and decided to not give Spurs the rub of the green in any matches.
Roberts was left amazed that when Harry Kane went down under a challenge from Sokratis Papastathopoulos in injury time at the Emirates, referee Martin Atkinson did not point to the penalty spot.
Graham: “Referees for the last year have been right against Tottenham.”
Paul: “You believe there’s a vendetta?”
