Newcastle United pulled off a surprise 1-0 win at Tottenham on Sunday afternoon, but the game wasn’t without controversy.
Spurs put in their worst performance for some time yet will feel aggrieved about a penalty decision that didn’t go their way late in the second half.
Harry Kane appeared to be hauled down by a falling Jamaal Lascelles but referee Mike Dean was having none of it. However, instant replays suggested VAR would overturn the decision.
But no – Dean’s decision stood and Newcastle got away with one. Watch below.
