Penalty Call: Tottenham Fans Compare Eric Dier and Callum Hudson-Odoi

Manchester United’s appeals for a penalty against Chelsea was turned down after a Callum Hudson-Odoi handball was obvious enough after Chelsea keeper, Mendy parried Rashford free kick away.

Tottenham Hotspur fans who have enjoyed a day on Sunday, following a comfortable 4-0 Premier League victory at home against Burnley have taken out time to argue and compare Hudson-Odoi and Dier.

A resounding win for Jose Mourinho’s side has provided a boost in confidence following on from a few difficult results in recent weeks.

That win has allowed Spurs fans to relax with their feet up for the remainder of the day but many have chosen to continue watching the Premier League’s entertainment on offer.

The feature game of the day was Chelsea’s hosting of Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, as the two top-four chasing teams went head-to-head in west London.

Penalty Call: Tottenham Fans Compare Eric Dier and Callum Hudson-Odoi

After Marcus Rashford’s free-kick was palmed away by Blues goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, Callum Hudson-Odoi appeared to handle the ball on at least two occasions.

While Mason Greenwood also seemed to strike the ball with his arm, his touch occurred after the one from his England teammate.

Manchester United fans were understandably angry at the decision of Stuck, as they took to social media to share their thoughts, but they weren’t the only fanbase left frustrated.

Recall Newcastle penalty, which came in the 97th minute, was widely criticised and the fact that a different decision has occurred this time around has left fans calling for consistency.

Tottenham fans also jumped on the trend, comparing the decision to a call that was given against Eric Dier during Spurs’ 1-1 draw with Newcastle United in September.
