Tottenham striker Harry Kane has said that the choice not to grant him a punishment during the Premier League conflict against Newcastle United on Sunday was 'difficult to take'. 

With Spurs trailing 1-0 going into the last 10 minutes of the match, Kane locked onto a ball inside the container and went down under a test from Newcastle commander Jamaal Lascelles. The intrigue from the England striker was waved away by ref Mike Dean, however the occurrence was evaluated by VAR which chose there was insufficient proof to upset the first choice. 

VAR has been a noteworthy idea in the early piece of the period, with the Premier League attempting to grapple with first experience with the English game, yet the England chief is inflexible that the framework ought to have seen Spurs get a spot kick. 

"It's there to help the arbitrator on the pitch," Kane said of the innovation, as announced by Goal . "Mike Dean said that he simply didn't have an inkling, he couldn't see, with the goal that's the place the VAR is there to enable him to out. 

"On the off chance that he had said 'no punishment' and the VAR was a 50-50, at that point you can concur. In any case, I don't have the foggiest idea what his discussion was with them upstairs, on the off chance that he said he didn't see it or not. 


"I've watched it back and think that its difficult to see how it hasn't been given. It's much the same as if a goalkeeper turns out, utilizes his arms and entangles you – it's a punishment. I sort of stumbled over his arm and after that his body fell into me. 

"Regardless of whether it was conscious or not, from my perspective it's difficult to take. Be that as it may, I said a week ago that with VAR here and there you will get the rub of the green, once in a while not. 

"The offsides are unequivocal in light of the fact that there is a sort of assurance. The 50-50 ones are in every case hard. It's never going to remove that theory since, similar to this one, it's constantly a matter of supposition."
Tottenham went onto lose the game 1-0, with Newcastle striker Joelinton scoring the only goal of the game.
Spurs will now have to dust themselves down ready for the trip to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday for the North London Derby against Arsenal.
