Tottenham’s Mourinho: Kane did not ‘win’ penalty; Man Utd, Liverpool deserve more scrutiny

soccer jerseys
Jose Mourinho has launched an impassioned defence of Harry Kane after the Tottenham striker was criticised for "winning" a penalty against Brighton and insisted Spurs' Premier League rivals deserve greater scrutiny for exaggerating contact in the box. The opening goal of Sunday's 2-1 win over Brighton came from the penalty spot after Kane was adjudged to have been fouled by Adam Lallana. Referee Graham Scott initially awarded a free kick but the VAR official Jon Moss upgraded that decision to a spot kick on review having deemed the incident took place just inside the box. "I never spoke about penalties, that's not part of the things we want to improve," Mourinho said at a news conference on Wednesday. "I think, I'm not speaking to you, I'm speaking to you [media]…

It was deja vu all over again on Tuesday as his side claimed a 2-1 win against Paris Saint-Germain on matchday 1 of this season's Champions League group stage.

Everton are top of the Premier League. Two weeks ago, they were top of the UK iTunes chart, knocking Miley Cyrus into second position, thanks to downloads of "Spirit of the Blues," a song that usually reverberates around Goodison Park just before kick-off on matchday, by supporters determined to enjoy every moment of the club's resurgence. It's been a while since things have been this good for Everton, Liverpool's neighbours and rivals, but when Jurgen Klopp's Premier League champions visit Goodison for the Merseyside derby on Saturday, it will be the blues looking down on the reds for once.
