LONDON (AP) - Chelsea complained that he was at the draw in Wolverhampton had to play with a squad exhausted from coronavirus. Liverpool grumbled at the referees being held by Tottenham. And Manchester City only sauntered forward at the top of the Premier League. Pep Guardiola's side advanced three points ahead of Liverpool, who drew 2-2 at Tottenham after defender Andrew Robertson was sent off and angry that opposing striker Harry Kane didn't see red. Liverpool had already conceded the last time - Son Heung-min's equalizer in the 74th minute - when Robertson was sent off three minutes later for a wild kick against Emerson Royal. Kane had already given Tottenham the lead - after snapping through Tanguy Ndombele's through ball - for only the second league goal of the season in his 15th game for the striker. "We can give Robbo a red card, it's not the smartest challenge of his life, but that (from Kane) is definitely a red card," said Klopp. Harry can't tell, if Robbo's leg is on the floor, it's a broken leg. ”Liverpool took the lead, Diogo Jota equalized in the 35th and Robertson nodded from close range in the 69th. But Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker missed an attempt to clear Harry Winks' long ball, which gave Son a chance to grab the ball "It was an exciting game and we created many, many opportunities," said Tottenham coach Antonio Conte. “We must be a little disappointed with the draw. But Liverpool are losing ground to City to recapture the trophy. City defender Ciaran Clark started their eighth league win in a row, enabling Ruben Dias to lead the opening game in Newcastle before Joao Cancelo struck powerfully. Riyad Mahrez's 50th league goal since joining City in 2018 scored the 63rd goal before Raheem Sterling scored a fourth in the 86th goal. It was City's 34th league win in 2021, beating the previous calendar year record in England set by Liverpool in 1982. "Newcastle were penultimate, nearing half-time, underscoring the need for the new Saudi ownership to join the squad in January - Reinforce transfer window. Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel criticized the league for failing to postpone the trip to Wolverhampton, which ended 0-0 in a weekend when six of the 10 games were canceled due to coronavirus cases. Chelsea were seven missing Player with COVID-19 and Jorginho at Molineux was not at risk of health and safety for the players, not only because of COVID but also physically, after inconclusive test results, "said Tuchel. “I am not sure if I will get COVID. Chelsea fell to six points behind City.
