The beginning of the match between Tottenham and Liverpool was sluggish for Antonio Conte's team. Keep in mind that Mohamed Salah gave his team the lead by scoring twice in the first half.
Fans have been discussing the absence of important players for Tottenham, Perisic's position as a forward, Nunez's performance, Dier's oversight, and Mohamed Salah's return to form, but this article will concentrate on the reasons why the match official should have given Liverpool a penalty in the first half. View this!
Sessegnon was pushed into the penalty area by Trent Arnold. Note that Ryan Sessegnon of Tottenham received a lovely pass in the box, but Trent unlawfully pursued him. The Liverpool defender should have been penalized for pushing Sessegnon inside the penalty area. Ryan Sessegnon, though, was fouled when he had an opportunity to produce one.
On the other side, take notice that Joao Cancelo of Manchester City was dismissed against Fulham for a comparable offence. Manchester City also gave up a penalty as a result of it. Therefore, it is inconsistent to deny Tottenham a penalty. This is why the decision the match referee made was incorrect.
