Jurgen KloppA Liverpool statistician has revealed an amazing statistic that helps understand why coach Jurgen Klopp was so frustrated with referee Paul Tierney on Sunday. Klopp's team and Spurs saw a gripping 2-2 draw at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but post-game discussions were dominated by in-game decisions by Tierney and VAR. VAR did not intervene, but the English captain should have seen red. Tierney then missed a penalty just before half-time after Emerson Royal's Diogo Jota, who had already received a yellow card, was bundled in the penalty area. Andy Robertson was sent off in the second half for a poor tackle against Royal after initially being booked by Tierney before VAR stepped in to give the Scottish captain his marching orders. A tweet from Liverpool statistician Ged Rea proves that concerns about the Reds games led by Tierney this season may well be justified. “In 20 home games this season @LFC received 27 yellow and one red cards. 11 of those yellows and reds were spent in 3 games by Paul Tierney. ' It seems a bit extreme that over 40% of Liverpool's offenses this season have been punished by Tierney in just 15% of their games.
