James Maddison makes pointed Jurgen Klopp remark after VAR drama leaves Liverpool furious

Despite Jurgen Klopp’s complaints, Tottenham midfielder James Maddison believed both of Liverpool’s red cards were appropriate.

After Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota received red cards from referee Simon Hooper, Spurs lost the game against a 9-man Liverpool squad. A mistake by Reds defender Joel Matip allowed the London team to score in the final minute of the six minutes of extra time, giving them the victory.

Cody Gakpo was injured, therefore Liverpool will now be missing the two first-team players when they travel to Brighton the following weekend. A “significant error” was made about an offside call that prevented the Reds from scoring the game’s first goal, according to PGMOL, who also acknowledged that there were other hot spots besides the red cards.

Following his team’s denial of a point, Klopp expressed his outrage by referring to a “unfair” game. But neither choice bothered Maddison in the least.

Prior to Joel Matip’s last-ditch blunder, Jurgen Klopp’s one that got away punished Liverpool.

According to Maddison (as reported by The BBC), “Jota’s definitely was [a red],” she told Sky Sports. The Curtis Jones incident from early on was also shown on the big screen, I believe it was a red card. I doubt Jurgen will be overly critical of those, either.


The former Leicester man also spoke about the challenges of breaking down the visitors’ nine men. Liverpool were already down to 10 when Gakpo scored their goal, levelling things up after Son Heung-min’s opener. Klopp’s team held out for 20 minutes while two men down, but fell just shy of preserving their unbeaten start to the season.

“You wouldn’t really practice it that much. It actually becomes probably more difficult,” Maddison said of the 11 vs 9 match-up. “Liverpool are devestating counter attacking on the break, their philosophy 11v10 doesn’t really change. We know 11v10 their strengths are still there. I’m a bit of a fuzzy head at the minute”

Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou was pleased to see his team make a late breakthrough but admitted they could have done better against their depleted opponents. ” We didn’t handle it too well when they went down to ten,” the former Celtic boss said.

“We started rushing things and we thought that because we had the man advantage that we could really dominate the game but the reality is even with ten men, their game doesn’t change. Their game operates on allowing you to make the mistakes and punishing teams.

“The second red card came from us putting the pressure on and then they filled their box with their tall guys so crossing it in wasn’t really an option. The own goal obviously came from the low cross so that’s something.”

Spurs’ victory moves them back up to second in the Premier League table, ahead of neighbours Arsenal on goals scored. The Gunners beat Bournemouth 4-0 earlier in the day, with Kai Havertz opening his Premier League account for Mikel Arteta’s side.
