Tottenham fans furious with handball decision after Man City loss

Man City 1-Tottenham 0

Tottenham travelled to Man City on Saturday for the second time in the space of a week.

Spurs lost 4-3 at the Etihad on Wednesday in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

Mauricio Pochettino will have been hoping to avoid a similar result this weekend with the top four race to close.

Tottenham started the weekend 3rd but could be as low as 5th come the end of the game week.

Dele Alli’s handball claim

Spurs’ game got off to a nightmare start with Phil Foden heading City in front inside five minutes.

Tottenham would eventually settle into the game and they did have a fair few chances, most of which came from Heung-Min Son.

However, Spurs were unable to break down the City defence.

The North London club did, however, have a huge penalty claim dismissed.

Dele Alli was challenging Kyle Walker inside the City box and the right-back appeared to put the ball out with his hand.

Michael Oliver waved away penalty claims though and his decision had a huge impact on the game, the title race and the top four fight.

Twitter reaction

Unsurprisingly, Spurs fans were furious after they Kyle Walker wasn’t penalised for handball.
