Tottenham’s Harry Kane controversially denied goal vs Chelsea for ‘push’ on Thiago Silva

  • Rob Swan

Tottenham striker Harry Kane was controversially denied an opening goal against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Kane thought he’d given Spurs the lead shortly before half-time after converting from close range.

However, referee Paul Tierney penalised Kane for a push on Chelsea defender Thiago Silva.

The decision appeared to split opinion on social media.

While some football fans agreed that the goal was rightfully ruled out, others believe that Silva made the most of the push and played for the free-kick.
