It’s often said in football that one thing everybody wants is some consistency from the decision makers, whether it’s the referees on the pitch or from those who make the decisions after the game is finished.

Spurs are still waiting to hear back from the FA on a potential ban for Eric Dier after he waded into the crowd to confront a fan a few months ago, and it was raised in Jose Mourinho’s press conference today.

He says that nothing was done when the Frenchman put his hands around someone else’s neck, so he feels the decision was made in that moment.

Obviously this isn’t really how it works and The FA will judge every case on it’s own merits, but you can be sure that Mourinho will have a lot to say if a ban is handed down here.
