Tottenham expert slams fans 'rewriting history' as Harry Kane controversy analysed
There was nothing wrong with Harry Kane’s goal for Tottenham against Leeds United despite complaints from the opposition players.
That is according to Spurs expert John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.
The Leeds players were not happy that Kane’s first-half equaliser stood as they believed Illan Meslier had been blocked while trying to defend a first-half corner.
As the corner was delivered, Clement Lenglet collided with Meslier, meaning he was unable to save Kane’s eventual effort, with the Leeds players furious that a foul was not awarded in favour of their goalkeeper.
Wenham insists there was no foul.
“Why do they want it disallowed? Because Meslier came running out to a ball he was not getting to?” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“He failed to get a proper connection on his punch and basically planted it right at Kane’s feet. They aren’t happy with that?
“That’s what happened. If you say anything else then you are rewriting history. The ball came in and Meslier didn’t get enough strength on his punch.
“That’s nothing to do with VAR, that’s to do with Meslier not punching the ball properly. I don’t get these complaints, I just don’t.
“Where is the foul? Make it make sense.”
Leeds took the lead three times at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium but were unable to take anything from the game.
Two late goals from Rodrigo Bentancur gave Spurs a 4-3 win.
