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.
Watch below as the Scotland international goes in studs-up in a rash tackle on Tottenham ace Japhet Tanganga, with no action taken from the referee or from VAR…
Robertson red card ???

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…
Look at these two tackles from Aubameyang & Robertson.
Looks pretty much the same right?
So why does Aubameyang get sent off and Roberston gets nothing? Bullshit. pic.twitter.com/0rer2vD0PF

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.
? Jose Mourinho after the game yesterday: "Liverpool were lucky. They could perfectly finish the game with ten men, because VAR at that time, they were having a tea and they didn't watch Robertson for a red card.” ??
Typical Jose. ? pic.twitter.com/WVqNoH9az6
