Alexis MacAllister might face an FA charge following his referee comments during Liverpool’s humiliating defeat against Tottenham.

Liverpool endured a late-minute heartbreak at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last Saturday, losing their first league game of the season.

After the opponents were relegated to nine men, Joel Matip converted into his own net deep into stoppage time to give Spurs the three points.

Following a contentious VAR review, Curtis Jones was awarded a red card, while second-half substitute Diogo Jota received two yellow cards.

Liverpool fans believe a Tottenham Hotspur player should have been sent off because match referee Simon Hooper committed a ‘mistake’.

Jurgen Klopp will be without Jones and Jota for their next league game, and Mac Allister may also be absent.

Following the result, the Argentine midfielder lashed out at Hooper on social media. Cristian Romero said on his joyful post, “Normal when you have 12 players.

Despite PGMOL’s apology, Liverpool could face a sanction following the VAR dispute.

Despite the PGMOL’s public apology to the Reds, Liverpool could face a large fine following their disputed defeat to Tottenham on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side, who finished with nine men, were dealt a stoppage time sucker punch when Joel Matip scored an own goal, giving Spurs a 2-1 win.

Liverpool fans were outraged after the PGMOL revealed that a goal was mistakenly ruled out for offside owing to a ‘human error’.

According to The Liverpool Echo, PGMOL chief Howard Webb has subsequently contacted out to the Merseyside club to apologize for the error.

Although fans will feel they are entitled more than an apology, it is possible that Liverpool could be fined heavily following the dismissals of Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota.

Because Alexis MacAllister, Mohamed Salah, Andy Robertson, and Virgil van Dijk were all booked, as well as assistant manager Peter Krawietz – and the FA penalizes clubs who receive more than five bookings in a game, with the Reds now facing a punishment.

The current punishment for any team that receives six or more cards in a single game is a £25,000 fine, which means Liverpool may have to pay.

However, whether or not the FA takes action is entirely up to them. Given the fact that Liverpool’s players were

Liverpool have now had four players sent off this season, but manager Jurgen Klopp says that despite their recent indiscipline, his squad is not a “kicking team.”

“It’s important to me that people don’t get the impression that because we have so many red cards, we’re a kicking team,” the 56-year-old told reporters following his club’s loss to Spurs. “We don’t [kick players].”

“Alexis’ first red card wasn’t a red card. The second is for a typical foul, in my opinion. Third, there’s the Curtis scenario, and fourth, I’m not sure how many games there are where you see 11 vs 9.

“It’s not something that happens very often, and we weren’t kicking Tottenham players.” We were attempting to play.

After Tottenham Hotspur’s contentious win over Liverpool, international teammates spat online, and things got heated.

Liverpool were defeated late by Tottenham Hotspur in a contentious Premier League match, and two international teammates engaged in a heated internet debate about the bad performance.

Curtis Jones was sent out after 26 minutes for a tackle on Yves Bissouma, with VAR intervening to generate a red card – and it would not be the first time the remote official was a talking point.

Not long after being reduced to 10 men, Liverpool believed they had grabbed the lead when Luis Diaz tucked home, only to have it ruled out for offside by the linesman, with no VAR intervention.

However, the PGMOL later confirmed that it was indeed onside and that the goal should have stood.

Spurs seized the lead after Diaz’s shot was ruled out when Son Heung-min tucked home, but Liverpool equalized in first-half stoppage time with Cody Gakpo’s clever finish.

Jurgen Klopp’s team was reduced to nine men when Diogo Jota received two yellow cards in rapid succession with about 20 minutes remaining.

It appeared like the spoils would be split, only for Spurs to take all three points when, deep in injury time, Liverpool defender Joel Matip turned Pedro Porro’s cross into his own net, resulting in a 2-1 Spurs victory.

Spurs defender Cristian Romero rushed to Instagram to celebrate the thrilling win, praising his teammates’ spirit as they picked up three points at the death.

 

“This team has great spirit and heart,” he wrote. “It’s always been like this.”

 

That message, however, grabbed the notice of Alexis Mac Allister, a Liverpool midfielder and Romero’s Argentina international colleague.

 

In an apparent allusion to the refereeing performance in the game, Mac Allister wrote ‘normal cuando jugas with 12…’ in his native Spanish, with a comment that now appears to have been deleted.

This means ‘normal when you play with 12’.

However, Romero answered directly after this by just saying ‘a llorar a casa’ – which means ‘go cry at home’.

The next Argentina squad for the next World Cup qualifiers against Paraguay and Peru later this month has yet to be named, but if that dialogue is any indication, it could be a cold reunion for the duo if selected.

Alexis Mac Allister is disappointed to have the same EA FC rating as Darwin Nunez, claiming it’should be higher’.

Alexis MacAllister of Liverpool was devastated after receiving the same rating as Darwin Nunez in EA Sports FC 24.

EA FC 24 is EA Sports’ first football video game in 30 years that does not have FIFA branding.

The freshly upgraded game promises to be the best football video game ever, and it is finally accessible worldwide after a long wait.

A video of Liverpool players reacting to their ratings was posted on Friday morning. Mac Allister’s reply is shown below.

“Are you happy if you have the same rating as Darwin(Nunez)?” Diogo Jota was heard asking the Argentine.

“How much?” Mac Allister answered.

When told the rating was 82, Mac Allister expressed disappointment, saying, “No, it should be higher.”

“Pace 70?” the Argentine asked after reviewing his figures.

Jota remarked, “Yeah, you’re not very quick.”

“But 82?” Ibrahima Konate added. Normally, you have to be 85 to compete in the World Cup, but I don’t care because you won the World Cup against me.”

Mac Allister joined Liverpool from Brighton & Hove Albion for a rumoured fee of £35 million during the summer transfer window.

For Liverpool, the 24-year-old has frequently been used in an unaccustomed defensive midfield role.

Mac Allister discussed his new work with TNT Sports. “I like it (playing in a deeper role), of course I have to defend a little bit more, but that’s not a problem for me because I’m a team player,” he said.

“It’s critical for the players to understand the game, and that’s something I work on every day.” Then you can play as an eight, six, or ten, wherever.”

 

Mac Allister went on: “Now I’m playing as a six, which is a new position for me, but it’s a position I really like, I can do it and I can help the team from there.”

Liverpool returns to Premier League action this weekend, hosting Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening.
