‘Did a Vardy’ – Fans slate Tottenham star after controversial Liverpool antics

All the punters here in the Transfer Tavern had their eyes glued to our TV yesterday evening as Liverpool and Tottenham played out a genuine Premier League classic at Anfield in a thrilling 2-2 draw. 

In a game full of incident, one of the main talking points to have emerged has been whether or not Harry Kane dived for his opening penalty against the Reds, one he went onto miss. According to Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk, the England international did, as well as teammate Erik Lamela, who won the second spot-kick deep into added time.

Kane, the darling of English football, did so much to invoke the ire of our local Kopites on his way to scoring his 100th Premier League goal and it seems those on Twitter feel the same. Interestingly enough, it seems some on social media are comparing him with England teammate Jamie Vardy, who many feel dives to win penalties.

The Leicester City star isn’t a popular figure amongst the Spurs support and there’s a lot of comparison emerging online. Some are saying he ‘did a Vardy’, while others believe the Foxes ace would get far more criticism if he performed the same action.

With that in mind, here’s a look at the talk online.
