James Maddison couldn’t help but tease Trent Alexander-Arnold on Instagram over the recent VAR calamity.
The pair are on England duty together and met up for the first time since Liverpool were controversially denied a goal against Tottenham.
VAR did not overrule the incorrect on-field decision of offside when Luis Diaz scored at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The audio that was subsequently releasedshowed official Darren England hastily saying ‘check complete’, having thought the on-field decision was actually given as onside.
The game restarted and their error was realised almost straight away, but they did not, and could not, pull the game back.
Liverpool released a statement saying they were ‘exploring their options’, while manager Jurgen Klopp said a replay would be fair.
Spurs star Maddison poked fun at Alexander-Arnold in a hilarious Instagram post, making light of those calls for a replay.
Posting a picture of them both, he captioned the image: “Still asking for a replay.”
Maddison and his Tottenham team went on to win that match 2-1, against a nine-man Liverpool side.
Spurs head into the international break top of the Premier League, just ahead of rivals Arsenal, and remain unbeaten.
Maddison has been a revelation at the north London club since his move from Leicester in the summer.
He already has two goals and five assists in eight Premier League games so far this season.
