Video: Liverpool star lucky not to be sent off for nasty challenge vs Tottenham, with Arsenal’s Aubameyang shown red for similar foul

Liverpool left-back Andrew Robertson looked lucky to stay on the pitch after a nasty challenge during his side’s 1-0 win over Tottenham.

The foul has been compared to a similar one from Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the game against Crystal Palace earlier in the day.

On that occasion, Aubameyang was given a red card, and it’s pretty baffling that Robertson escaped any kind of punishment for such a similar offence…

Spurs manager Jose Mourinho certainly wasn’t happy about it as he slammed VAR after the game.

“They could have conceded a goal and got a red card for Robertson’s challenge,” he was quoted by the Daily Mirror.
