VAR chose not to prosecute Eric Dier’s potential infringement in the Spurs box, after the ball hit his arm early in the first-half.
Mo Salah may have been partly at fault, with the forward’s raised arm pulling up the Englishman’s as they tussled for possession.
Mark Clattenburg told the gathered pundits at half-time that the Tottenham man’s actions had not been deserving of a penalty, partly due to the movement of Salah’s arm.
Having taken another look, it would have been unfortunate for Dier, but the rules of the game would have arguably supported a penalty call, had it been given.
