Alexis Mac Allister ‘could face FA charge’ for referee comment after Tottenham vs Liverpool

Alexis Mac Allister could face an FA charge after his referee comments following Liverpool’s crushing defeat at Tottenham.

Liverpool lost their first league game of the season as they suffered last-minute heartbreak at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last Saturday.

Joel Matip converted into his own net deep, deep into stoppage to hand Spurs all three points after the visitors were reduced to nine men.

Curtis Jones was shown a red card following a controversial VAR review, with second-half substitute Diogo Jota picking up two yellow cards.

Liverpool fans think a Spurs player should have been sent off as they think match referee Simon Hooper made an ‘error’.

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

The Argentine midfielder hit out at Hooper on social media after the result. On Cristian Romero’s celebratory post, he wrote: “Normal when you have 12 players.

The FA could potentially charge Mac Allister for questioning the integrity of the match referee.

Liverpool are facing a potential FA wrap, too, following their defeat against Spurs.

Klopp’s team, meanwhile, return to action on Thursday when they face Union Saint-Gilloise in the Europa League, before resuming their league campaign on Sunday against Brighton.
