EVE 0-0 TOT: Why Everton's Defender "Red Card" Offense Was Unnecessary And Could've Been Avoided

Antonio Conte had to settle for a draw against Everton in his first EPL game as Tottenham's manager. The game was full of a lot of actions, but both teams were unable to score a goal.

However, the highlights of the game were the VAR decision to overturn Everton's penalty kick and Holgate's stoppage-time red card. This article will be taking a second look at the Red Card and why the offense was unnecessary and could have been avoided. Take a look!

Firstly, note that the red card was spot on because Holgate's tackle on Hojbjerg could lead to a long-term injury. On the other hand, the reality is that Holgate didn't need to make that foul after making a clearance. The 25-year-old intercepted a pass and then successfully made a clearance. The problem was that Holgate left his right leg in the challenge.

After making his clearance, Holgate didn't have to follow through with his leg because doing that wasn't safe. Holgate's clearance was perfect, but his follow-through challenge was unnecessary. The red card could've been avoided if he quickly removed his right leg.
