VAR CONTROVERSIES CONTINUE IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE

Edinson Cavani’s fist half goal was chalked off controversially by VAR after a review showed that Scott McTominay had committed a foul on Heung Min-son during the build-up to the goal. Pundits and experts have given their take in what was a controversial decision after McTominay made minimal contact on the South Korean who went down easily to draw a foul.

Ole Gunnar Solskajer also had his say on the decision and the reaction of Son by stating “I have to say if my son stays down like this for three minutes and he gets 10 of his mates around him if he gets that in the face from one of his other mates, and he needs 10 mates to help him up, he won’t get any food,”

IS IT ALL OVER FOR JOSE MOURINHO AT TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR?

During his managerial stint, the Portuguese manager has built a reputation of following out with a few players in his squad by his second or third season. This was season during his second tenure with Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United. However, at Tottenham, it seems to have escalated all too quickly.

After 2-2 draw against Newcastle United, Jose Mourinho hit back at his critics by stating that he still remains a top manager however the quality of his players are not the same. “Same coach, different players” and then went on to criticise his players further by stating-“there are mistakes which I probably shouldn’t even call mistakes because they are related to qualities that players have”

It clearly seems like Jose Mourinho has lost the dressing room at Tottenham and if he fails to deliver the Carabao Cup against Manchester City then it could all be over for the Portuguese tactician.
