Alan Shearer doesn’t think Tottenham Hotspur should have gotten a penalty against Newcastle United

Newcastle United left North London with a win at the expense of Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, with Joelinton’s first-half strike securing the visitors with very valuable three points.

The Magpies had just 20% of the possession during the game, but it was enough to give them a much-needed victory.

Spurs felt undone by the decision of referee Mike Dean not to hand them a spot-kick after Jamaal Lascelles appeared to have denied Harry Kane a goal-scoring chance inside the box in the second-half.

VAR confirmed it wasn’t a penalty, and it has since sparked a huge debate.
