    Tottenham’s Kane Escapes Red Card, Not Clear Why

    Newcastle United lost to Tottenham Hotspur yesterday at St James’ Park. United matched the visitors quite comfortably in the first half when they still had 11 men. But the game changed due to a sending off that happened – and a sending off that should have happened but didn’t. Jonjo Shelvey was the United culprit.
