Tottenham Hotspur should have finished with nine men yet somehow it was Arsenal who had a man sent off when Lucas Torreira was shown red.
Let’s be clear up front, Torreira deserve a red for his studs up challenge. I have no argument with that.
But how was Danny Rose’s studs-up attack on Bernd Leno’s stomach not also a red?
He saw yellow for that which should have been his second of the game. He’d blatantly dived earlier in the match but Anthony Taylor did nothing.
Then we had Davinson Sanchez kicking out at Laurent Koscielny while he lay on the ground yet the ref did nothing once again.
We can hope the FA take retrospective action and, given than he isn’t white and called Harry Kane, they might. I still wouldn’t hold my breath.
FA should suspend Davinson Sanchez for this. Totally unexceptionable pic.twitter.com/hdCgRjvCYp

So, there we have it, once again. Danny Rose should have been sent off twice and Sanchez once, but it was Arsenal who ended the game with 10 men.
Spurs are so f**ked when VAR comes in next season. It wouldn’t surprise me if Pochettino left before everyone sees clearly what a team of snide little cheats he’s created in the darkness of Tottenham.
