Spurs and Liverpool's furloughing of staff was unmitigated PR disaster

  Spurs and Liverpool's furloughing of staff was unmitigated PR disaster Premier League clubs' decision to take public money to furlough their staff never was a good look, whatever nonsense being propagated by some in the depths of the first lockdown. The frenzied whirl of the transfer merry-go-round these past few days has only gone to prove the point.The Tottenham MP David Lammy encapsulated it all in a couple of tweets.

LONDON, Sept 27 (Reuters) - Another controversial handball decision gave Newcastle United a stoppage-time equaliser by Callum Wilson from the penalty spot and a Wilson's spot-kick squeezed past Hugo Lloris and earned Steve Bruce's side a point that had looked unlikely for most of the match.

Spurs had led through a 25th-minute Lucas Moura goal and Newcastle had not managed a shot on target but deep into stoppage time Newcastle's Andy Carroll and Eric Dier challenged for a ball and the forward's header brushed the arm of the Spurs defender.

A VAR review led referee Peter Bankes to look at the incident, in which Dier had his back to the ball as he jumped with Carroll, and point to the spot.

Wilson's spot-kick squeezed past Hugo Lloris and earned Steve Bruce's side a point that had looked unlikely for most of the match.

The incident followed similar match-deciding handball decisions in Manchester United's win at Brighton and Everton's victory at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The decisions are a result of the Premier League adopting the same interpretation of the handball law as has been in operation in other countries for two years.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson had slammed the approach to handball after his side's defeat on Saturday and Newcastle manager Steve Bruce said he agreed with Hodgson.

Palace fans left seething over decision to penalise Ward for handball

  Palace fans left seething over decision to penalise Ward for handball Crystal Palace fans reacted furiously on social media after Everton were awarded a controversial penalty in their 2-1 away victory at Selhurst Park. The two teams were level at 1-1 when Lucas Digne's headed knockdown struck Palace defender Joel Ward on his left arm, which was held in a natural position by his side. The Palace defender was stood just two yards away from Digne when he inadvertently handled the ball, but referee Kevin Friend decided to point to the spot after a lengthy VAR review.

Newcastle snatched a 1-1 draw at Tottenham thanks to another contentious VAR penalty decision after Eric Dier was deemed to have handled in injury time. A decent enough football match took place here but instead we are left, as is seemingly the lawmakers’ preference, to obsess over handball .

"I can understand why Spurs will go berserk and Roy Hodgson reacted like he did. It is a total nonsense, we should be jumping through hoops but I would be devastated if that was us.

"Maybe Roy is right, maybe we all need to get together. The decisions are ruining the spectacle. We have to get together as managers and say this must stop," Bruce added.

"It's impossible to jump without putting your arms up to give you balance. It's a nonsense. We've got away with one today, yes, but it could have quite easily been at our end."

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho dodged questions about the incident saying he did not want to be fined.

Mourinho's side started brightly and Newcastle keeper Karl Darlow had to produce a superb double save to keep out a

Giovani Lo Celso free kick and Harry Kane's follow-up.

Darlow also did well to save a Kane header but Spurs broke through in the 25th minute -- Son Heung-min fed Kane on the left and his low ball across the face of goal was turned in by Moura at the far post.

Tottenham's Son Heung-Min sidelined 'for a while' with hamstring issue

  Tottenham's Son Heung-Min sidelined 'for a while' with hamstring issue Tottenham's woes have continued as Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Son Heung-Min was withdrawn at half-time of their 1-1 draw with Newcastle with a hamstring injury. The South Korean winger started Spurs' draw at home to the Magpies and played a key role in a dominant opening period, hitting the woodwork twice though did not appear for the second-half.Son was just getting into his stride and scored four goals in the north Londoners' 5-2 win over Southampton last weekend to open his account for the season. His latest injury will keep him out for several weeks, according to Mourinho.

Up to that point , Newcastle had not managed a single shot on target but Wilson fired past Hugo Lloris to level the scores and the final whistle blew shortly after. After a much more even second half, substitute Erik Lamela brought a good save out of Darlow from a free-kick on the edge of the right

Son fired a left-foot shot against the post before striking the woodwork again with a drive against the bar three minutes before the interval.

Mourinho took Son off at the break, perhaps taking into account the team's busy schedule with midweek League Cup and Europa League matches on the horizon, but without the South Korean there was a more pedestrian look to Tottenham.

Still, Mourinho's side appeared to have done enough until late drama which caused the Portuguese manager to storm down the tunnel.
