Andy Robertson should have been punished for his brutal tackle on Japhet Tanganga, fans opine it after his reckless challenge went unnoticed.
Amidst the much hyped match between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, fans have a huge complaint from the incident happened in the match last night.
In the second half of the match, Andy Robertson and Japhet Tanganga contested for the ball which saw the Scotsman plant his studs on Tanganga’s ankle.
Despite winning the ball, his boot was high and fans were shocked the incident wasn’t reviewed by VAR. Shockingly, the foul did not even make him receive a yellow card.

Since Robertson’s tackle wasn’t a red because he “won the ball” Liverpool fans can stop moaning about this being a red as Kompany clearly wins the ball 🤷🏻♂️ pic.twitter.com/MJmiGjgEKU

After the card both players remained on the pitch, crying in the agony, however, in the replay, it looked Tanganga got more damage in the process. Fortunately, in the end, the 20-year-old player was fine and continued playing.
Meanwhile, many were also quick to compare the challenge to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s earlier today, with the Arsenal captain receiving a red card against Crystal Palace.
Nevertheless, it was a harsh tackle on the English player who made his debut in the Premier League last night, Robertson has earlier also been going tough and picking fights against his opposite players, but the player has escaped many times.
In the end, Liverpool managed to secure 3 points from their trip to the North London, with the win they are undefeated in the last 38 games they have played in the Premier League making them 16 points clear in the table.
Roberto Firmino scored the only goal of the game as his first-half strike saw Jurgen Klopp’s side record their 20th league victory of the season. Jose Mourinho’s side grew into the game in the second half and had multiple chances to snatch a point but Liverpool survived.
