Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho was not impressed by the penalty which saw Manchester United equalise late on against his side on Friday evening. He was also left seething by another penalty awarded right at the death, though VAR overturned the decision when it became clear that Bruno Fernandes had made the most of a coming-together with Eric Dier.

Jose Mourinho said “We knew that we could have a penalty against and we were very careful with it, We know that Manchester United has an incredible record with penalties given this season and we knew that everything in the box was very dangerous for us. We had to be very cautious, we were prepared to block every shot with hands behind the body. We knew that it could happen. I think in the first penalty the referee Jonathan [Moss] made this decision, which I admit is difficult for referees. Then the VAR is a different story. I think referees can make mistakes but I don’t think VAR should make mistakes. Then the second penalty is incredible for me. It’s a foul on Serge Aurier that should kill the situation. Then it’s a situation in the box and I feel when VAR goes for simulation immediately the player should be exposed and get a yellow card. But that didn’t happen. I feel really upset with these two decisions but that’s how it is.”
