The tackle went to VAR and despite the nature of the late challenge, Sterling was only shown yellow.Spurs boss Mourinho watched the foul back in the dugout and was in shock as officials deemed it not dangerous play.Sterling was quick to apologise to Alli – who was left wincing in pain.Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was sent off for a similar tackle against Crystal Palace last month after initially only receiving yellow.Fans online slammed the lack of consistency after Sterling escaped an early sending off.One said: “Red all day. Same as Aubamayang vs Palace, right on the ankle.”Another said: “No difference in that and Aubameyang’a red against Palace. No consistency.”One added: “Absurd call.”Absurd call— EPL Football Talk (@PLfootballtalk) February 2, 2020 This is what Jose Mourinho thought of the decision 😤 pic.twitter.com/KmVZuAtEJZ— Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) February 2, 2020center_img the same sort of challenge Auba got sent off for….. #VAR— ℳℜ.KIИGßEEZ👑🐝🇯🇲 (@lando_AFC) February 2, 2020 Disgusting tackle and even worse decision!
