It seems like whenever they don't get their way in a big game they start making reckless tackles against their opponent.
Agree 100% on the Alli one, could very easily have been a leg-break.Both KDB and Sterling(?) lucky not to be out for a long long time today. Don't think Kanes was intentional just clumsy but Alli's was 100% to hurt. Great player but a real shithouse. In fairness not all Spurs players are like that Eriksen, Son etc.. never seem to get really dirty.
Not really worth bringing that up on a day where you should have had two red cards but the refs fecked upI think this idea is based on a few high profile games, the facts would back this up.
It's not like some of your own players don't have a bit of a dirty profile Marouane "The Elbows" Fellaini or Ander "The Hatchet" Herrera.
And since Alli already recieved a yellow card for that potential leg-breaker he cannot receive retrospective punishment.That Kane tackle compared to Pogba's.
Adding to this ... also fouls going “undetect” and not picked up by refs. From the games i’ve seen from City, they’ve been very fortunate, some may say clever on their part, not to get called out more.That's nothing to do with what OP asked, fouling doesn't mean dirty.
