Tottenham Hotspur handed Liverpool their first defeat of the season on Saturday. In a thrilling encounter, Spurs managed to steal all 3 points at the death. A Joel Matip own goal meant that Spurs would continue their unbeaten start to the season. Two Liverpool players saw red cards and at the heart was Luis Díaz‘s ‘disallowed’ goal. Officials later admitted an error in the offside call.

Following the game, Argentina World Cup winner Alexis Mac Allister took to Instagram and commented, “Normal when you play with 12” under Romero’s post about the game against Liverpool. To the surprise of many, Romero replied, “Go cry at home.” The fixture was highly controversial following the disallowed Luis Diaz goal.

The two Liverpool red cards also infuriated The Reds. Both Diogo Jota and Curtis Jones saw red in ‘highly questionable’ circumstances, as per fans and players. Mac Allister has since deleted his comment under Romero’s post. The two are International teammates. It is yet to be clarified whether it was friendly banter or otherwise.

Hopefully, it is all friendly, heated banter. But more heat is expected in the coming days after so many questionable officiating errors that marred the game. Further, it potentially cost Liverpool the chance to walk away with a point or 3. The final scoreline read, Tottenham 2 – 1 Liverpool.

Jürgen Klopp says “I never saw a more unfair game” after 2-1 loss to Spurs

Liverpool saw their 19-game unbeaten streak come to an abrupt end. A 2-1 defeat away from home ended Liverpool’s unbeaten start to the season. It was safe to say that Jürgen Klopp was far from impressed. Following the game, the Liverpool boss lashed out against the officiating. “I never saw a more unfair game,” said the manager.

Klopp’s side were at the end of two red card decisions. Curtis Jones‘ unfortunate ‘slip’ was met with the harshest of consequences. Down to ten men, Liverpool went down a goal but managed to pull one back. However, Diogo Jota also saw red after a ‘soft’ second yellow.

Soon, down to 9 men, Liverpool held on for over 20 minutes. However, an unfortunate Matip’s own goal was the undoing of Klopp’s side. Moreover, the German manager’s comments were also referring to Luis Diaz’s goal which was disallowed. PGMOL also commented that there was a significant ‘human error’ and that the goal should have stood.
