In Sunday’s English Premier League football news, Tottenham Hotspur held Liverpool to a tie at home, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. After many goals and yellow cards, Reds head coach Jurgen Klopp has reflected on Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham yesterday.
In the match’s first half, just after he opening the scoring last night, Harry Kane almost received a red card. But though he hit Andy Robertson’s boot in a high-speed tackle, Paul Tierney only showed him a yellow card.
Later in the match, just after the defender scored too, Robertson himself committed a tackle, kicking through Emerson Royal’s back. This time, though, the Video Assistant Referee convinced the referee, who originally proffered a yellow card, to give Robertson red.

Actually, Klopp was also yellow-carded for his rant at the fourth official, sarcastically bowing as he went into the book.
“I was a bit more emotional in the game. He comes over and gives me a yellow card but I’d have preferred the right decisions on the pitch,” the Liverpool boss said after the match.
“I think it was an exciting game and we created many chances to score and win the game,” Conte, whose side were back in action for the first time in two weeks after COVID-19 postponements, said.
“We have to be a bit disappointed for the draw,” Klopp then said about the match itself. “For sure we played against a really strong team.
“For the chances we created, we go home with the thought instead of one point it could be three points.”
Liverpool next play Leicester City in the League Cup on Wednesday. They then come face-to-face with Leeds United on Boxing Day and finally Leicester in the league on Dec. 28.
And Reds manager Jurgen Klopp calls this pre-winter break schedule “impossible.”
“We do not have the players,” the Liverpool head coach bemoaned. “We could maybe have another [COVID-19] case or two.”
Klopp added: “We have to think about it, we cannot just push it all through. We would prefer to play but we need some help. If we carry on we cannot carry on as usual.”
