In Premier League matchweek 7, Tottenham Hotspur welcomed Liverpool to their home ground the ‘Spurs Stadium’ on Saturday. In this exhilarating fixture, the home side defeated the nine-man Liverpool team, courtesy of a 96th-minute own goal by Liverpool defender Joel Matip.
Following the loss, Liverpool’s Argentine midfield ace Alexis Mac Allister took a dig at the comments of Christian Romero who posted a celebratory post on his Instagram profile regarding their recent win to which Romero hit back at his fellow national teammate.
Alexis MacAllister gets trolled by Cristian Romero
Both Christian Romero and Alexis Mac Allister were integral parts of the Argentina World Cup-winning triumph last year in Qatar. The Argentine duo plays their club football in the English Premier League, Romero for Spurs and Mac Allister for Jurgen Klopp’s side Liverpool.
In their recent encounter between Liverpool and Spurs on Saturday, the on-field match official canceled out an onside goal for Mac Allister’s side in the 36th minute of the match, which came through the Colombian winger Luis Diaz, along with two red card dismissals.
Recently, the two World Cup-winning teammates were involved in an online exchange of words. The former Brighton midfielder Mac Allister made a comment on his national teammate and Club rival Christian Romero’s Instagram, saying, “Normal when you play with 12” to which Romero responded with a savage “Go cry at Home”
Liverpool had a frustrating outing yesterday, evening as two of their players were shown red cards under questionable circumstances. Additionally, a goal that could have placed them in the lead was incorrectly disallowed for offside, further adding to their grievances.
Mac Allister’s retort came after a frustrating defeat where even Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had hit out at the questionable verdict given against his side, despite PGMOL admitting their significant error in the decision.
Tottenham secured a controversial win over Liverpool
Ange Postecoglou’s side extended their unbeaten streak this season with a 2-1 victory, a result that can be labeled controversial due to the referee’s decision. Despite having a numerical advantage over Liverpool, the win for Spurs was sealed through an own goal.
Spurs dramatically secured all three points against the Merseyside rivals and climbed up to the 2nd spot in the league.
Post-match, the Spurs boss Postecoglou voiced his opinion on the controversial decision stating, “The problem I think we have, or we seem to fail to grasp, is no form of technology is going to make the game errorless.”
Nonetheless, the Premier League has already replaced the lead VAR from the match Darren England and his assistant, Dan Cook, for their respective next fixtures. Additionally, PGMOL assured Liverpool that a review will be carried out on the matter.
