This was the second time Michael Oliver has denied Son a penalty at Wembley this season after he chose not to award a spot-kick in the final moments of Liverpool’s 2-1 win in September.
Pochettino has not forgotten that incident and was incredulous in his response to yesterday’s re-run. He told PA Sport:
“Today do you think that Sonny deserved to be booked? Unbelievable, unbelievable, unbelievable.
“When you compare the situation with the penalty against us, unbelievable. The problem is, I told Michael Oliver, the situation of Liverpool in the last minute that should be a penalty, but it was a clear penalty.”
Did Sonny dive? The ref thought so and we all know that they close ranks.
Better diving is required, that’s my one size fits all solution!
