Gary Lineker has called on the handball law to be changed

Gary Lineker disagreed with fellow pundits Robbie Savage and Glenn Hoddle about a controversial incident in Watford’s 3-1 win over Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

The former Spurs forward told the pair on Twitter that he felt Anthony Martial was fouled in the build up to Watford’s first goal in the Premier League clash.

Martial was sent to the floor after a heavy challenge on the left-hand-side of his own penalty area before Watford broke into the box and scored through Étienne Capoue.

Both Savage and Hoddle agreed with the referee in saying that Martial was not fouled in the build-up to the goal while on commentary for BT Sport.

“Sorry, but that looked like a foul to me,” Lineker said on his personal Twitter account. “Disagree with Glenn Hoddle and Robbie Savage. Good finish again from Capoue though.”

Lineker, who regularly works alongside Savage on Match of the Day, has developed a reputation for voicing strong opinions and cheeky asides on the social media platform.

The former Spurs star bagged 80 goals himself in 138 appearances for the north London outfit and is now one of the most high-profile football presenters on television.

The two teams went into the half-time interval separated by the controversial goal before Marcus Rashford pulled one back for United midway through the second half.

Watford secured a notable win after late goals from Juan Zuniga and skipper Troy Deeney.

In other Tottenham news, Stan Collymore has claimed that Spurs should have signed Gonzalo Higuain or Edinson Cavani this summer instead of Vincent Janssen.
