Tottenham appears to appeal Son Heung-min’s red card in the pathetic 2-0 Premier League loss to Chelsea.
The South Korean exit the Sunday game after kicking at the Blues defender, Antonio Rudiger at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The second-half dismissal of the Spurs forward after the VAR review was due to his reaction after missing a ball contest to Rudiger.
Meanwhile, the South Korea star earlier got a red card against Everton over a tackle with Andre Gomes but turned it over. Now, Son has three red card record with his dismissal against Leicester City.
Spur boss, Jose Mourinho says he feels bad and inserts that the officials did not get a correct decision. Therefore, the club is challenging the verdict of sending Son off the match.
Mourinho said after the game: “One time was the foul that Rudiger did on him. The second is to be sent off.
“So I think to be punished twice is enough.”
Consequently, Son will be absent for three consecutive matches but the Portuguese seem to replace him with Erik Lamela. The Argentine is back to training after suffering a hamstring injury for the past two months.
The outcome from Chelsea defeat over Tottenham slips the Spurs to seventh on the Premier League table from the previous Fifth. Mourinho’s side is now six-point off the top four challenge to qualify for the Champions League next season.
