BBC Dailly Football Podcast Refereeing ‘flops’ leave Klopp in a strop as City stay top

BBC Football Daily Podcast

Emma Saunders is joined by former West Ham teammates Nigel Reo-Coker and Carlton Cole and EA presenter Nubaid Haroon to reflect on Sunday’s Premier League matches.

Tottenham’s thrilling 2-2 draw with Liverpool caused a stir with some controversial refereeing decisions as Andy Robertson was sent off for a challenge on Emerson Royal in the second half. But should Harry Kane have met a similar fate after a high tackle on Robertson in the first half?

Jurgen Klopp gives another spicy interview to Rob Nothman… Klopp didn’t quite suggest he was Rob’s puppy this time but he wasn’t too happy with one question.

The guys share what they thought of some of the decisions and whether Antonio Conte will be disappointed his side didn’t take all three points.

Liverpool’s failure to win means Manchester City are three points clear at the top at Christmas after they beat Newcastle 4-0. That win wasn’t without controversy either, with Newcastle adamant they should have had a penalty after Ederson took out Ryan Fraser in the box when City were 2-0 up. Hear what Alan Shearer made of that (SPOILER: He wasn’t too impressed).

Pep Guardiola also says he dropped some players because their behaviour off the pitch in the run up to Christmas has not been up to standard. The guys discuss whom Guardiola might be referring to and Nigel has a VERY interesting take on why Newcastle fans might not be too fussed if they get relegated…

And Thomas Tuchel wasn’t too happy after the Premier League rejected their request to postpone their game at Wolves due to a covid outbreak in the squad. They were held to a goalless draw at Molineux, which leaves them six points adrift of the top, so was Tuchel right to be annoyed about the game going ahead?
