However, in seven days where Mo Salah was blamed for plunging to win Liverpool a punishment, Mourinho claims the attention ought to be on players who go down too without any problem. 

The Spurs chief, whose side face Ludogorets in the Europa League on Thursday night, stated: "Talk about Liverpool. Speak about Manchester United. 

"Talk about these punishments where there is a cunning person and someone comes and blows on them and they are on the floor. Try not to talk about Harry Kane. 

"He didn't win a punishment. Lallana made a punishment. Kane didn't win anything. For me it's unmistakable. 

"I think you are befuddled. Since you could be talking about some Manchester United players. You could be talking about some Manchester City players. 

"You could be talking about some Liverpool players. You could be talking about some Chelsea players. 

What's more, you are talking about Harry Kane being in a perilous position. What are you talking about being astute or not being cunning? That was a foul. 

He sees the ball noticeable all around. He utilizes his body to secure. Furthermore, Lallana was wild. He committed an error. He committed an error, period. There is no story." 

Kane's punishment was by all account not the only questionable occurrence on the night, with Tariq Lamptey's equalizer for Brighton remaining regardless of Solly March seeming to foul Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the development. 

Scott turned into the principal Premier League arbitrator to stay with his unique choice subsequent to counseling the pitchside VAR screen, and Mourinho asked him to clarify his however cycle after the match. 

Presumably the arbitrator ought to go to the question and answer session and clarify," he said. 

"He had the opportunity to go to the screen so no one but he can clarify why it is an objective. He is a decent ref and a hero, no one but he can clarify that choice. My view doesn't make a difference."
