Tottenham have stated they will appeal the controversial red card given to Danny Rose in the loss to Manchester City, according to BBC Sport.
The Spurs star was sent off after taking down Edin Dzeko in the box in the 50th minute but replays show that he clearly got the ball.
He was dismissed and Yaya Toure scored the subsequent penalty to score the second goal in a 5-1 thrashing.
The assistant referee gave the decision, and this was the same assistant who has previously given a Tottenham goal offside which later appeared to be on-side.
Referee Andre Marriner initially gave a corner but his decision was swayed by his assistant who advised the awarding of a penalty, which led to the decision to remove Rose from the field for stopping a clear goal scoring opportunity.
Many talks have been taking place at FIFA about whether or not a red card should be given at a penalty because the goal scoring opportunity is redeemed when the penalty is taken.
Both decisions appeared harsh and were both game changing moments.
It is possible that if Tottenham had scored the equaliser and it had not been given offside they might have had a chance of mounting some sort of a challenge.
