Sadio Mane vs Son Heung-min: Tottenham denied by last minute pro-Liverpool call

Tottenham 1 – Liverpool 2

Liverpool’s perfect start to the season continued on Saturday at Wembley.

Last season Tottenham beat Liverpool 4-1 in this fixture. That day Dejan Lovren was the fall-guy for the Reds.

However this Saturday, Tottenham supporters were looking at the likes of Michel Vorm and Eric Dier as they lost to Jurgen Klopp’s men.

A Georginio Wijnaldum header gave Liverpool a 39th minute lead. Roberto Firmino doubled Liverpool’s lead early in the second half.

While Erik Lamela scored in injury time to set up a frantic finish.

Son Heung min made his return to Tottenham in the second half.

Should the South Korean have been awarded a last gasp penalty?

In the final stages of the game, Son went down in the box under a challenge from Sadio Mane.

Mane didn’t get the ball. Instead the Liverpool striker kicked Son’s ankle.

The Tottenham star fell in the box. But the ref didn’t award a penalty.
