Breaking Tottenham midfielder issues two-word ruling on Liverpool’s Star dismissal

The decision of James Maddison about the red cards given to Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota during Saturday’s thrilling Premier League victory for Tottenham Hotspur against Liverpool has been made.

In stoppage time, Joel Matip scored on his own goal to give Ange Postecoglou’s team the victory. Maddison was speaking to Sky Sports (airing on 30/9 from 17:00).

Certainly, what transpired at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will enrage Liverpool. The PGMOL has officially acknowledged that the decision to overturn Luis Diaz’s goal was incorrect (source: BBC Sport).

Only nine players were left on the pitch after Jurgen Klopp’s team was done.

James Madison considers that Diogo Jota’s dismissal was appropriate.
After going over the top of the ball and making a fairly nasty-looking challenge on Yves Bissouma, Curtis Jones was dismissed from the game.

After the interval, Diogo Jota was also ejected for receiving two consecutive yellow cards. After an unnecessary lunge to try to halt Destiny Udogie, the second warning was given.

Numerous Liverpool supporters will disagree with both decisions. James Madison, however, believes that both calls were made correctly by the referees.

Jota’s was unquestionably it, he told Sky Sports. The Curtis Jones red card from early on was also displayed on a large screen, I believe. I doubt Jurgen will be very vocal about those, however.

It is obvious that Jones did not intend to make contact with Bissouma. His foot also appeared to slide off the ball’s top. While he can undoubtedly have few complaints, Jota did not make much contact during either of the challenges.

Liverpool had every reason to be irate with Luis Diaz’s goal being overturned. As a result, their supporters will be especially irate that they received two red cards.

Additionally, they are unable to challenge the dismissal of Jota.

It is clear why Jones and Jota were dismissed by the referee. However, you can see why the Liverpool supporters would be upset with the officials’ behaviour on a bad day for them.
