- Kane accused of over-reacting after Abdoulaye Doucouré shove
- Acting manager Stellini: ‘The hand was clearly on the face’
Cristian Stellini, Tottenham’s acting head coach, defended Harry Kane against accusations of cheating after they were levelled at the England captain during a fractious 1-1 draw at Everton.
The Everton midfielder Abdoulaye Doucouré was shown a straight red card for hitting Kane in the face in an incident instigated by the Spurs striker. Kane collapsed theatrically to the ground and chants of “cheat, cheat, cheat” accompanied his every touch thereafter. He was also booed off at the final whistle by a Goodison Park crowd in uproar after Michael Keane rescued a point for Sean Dyche’s team with a stunning 90th-minute goal.
