Liverpool fans want Jan Vertonghen to be banned

Liverpool win at Tottenham

It was another superb weekend for Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp’s men kept up their winning run with a fifth straight victory.

Goals from Gini Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino put the Reds 2-up at Wembley Stadium.

Erik Lamela scored a late consolation for Spurs.

Jan Vertonghen vs Roberto Firmino

Roberto Firmino was forced out of the game in the second half following a collision with Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen.

Firmino couldn’t continue after he took a hit in the face.

Vertonghen’s hand left the Brazilian with a bloody face just under his eye. While Firmino indicated he couldn’t continue due to his eye issue.

Vertonghen wasn’t booked for his coming together with Firmino.

However, according to Liverpool fans on social media, the Spurs defender should be banned.

Still photos from the incident have been used to show how Vertonghen landed an ‘eye-gauge’ on Firmino.

Was it intentional? Did the Belgian really means to stick his finger in the Brazilian’s pupil?

Firmino went to hospital after the incident versus Spurs.

Happily the Liverpool striker was discharged after a short while without any problem.
