Liverpool legend Aldridge brands Kane, Alli 'CHEATS': Media always sucks up to them!

Liverpool legend John Aldridge has branded Tottenham stars Harry Kane and Dele Alli as unreserved "CHEATS".

Writing for the Irish Independent, Aldridge stated: "Harry Kane and Dele Alli should be called out for what they are after their antics at Anfield on Sunday - and that is cheats.

"After Alli was booked (yet again) for diving in the box to try and win a penalty in the second half of a thrilling game against Liverpool, Kane got the spot kick Spurs craved as he fell over in the box under minimal contact from keeper Loris Karius.

"The referee and his linesman were conned by Kane's tumble and it got worse when Erik Lamela fell to the ground like he had been shot in injury time and the assistant referee was duped into giving a second penalty.

"Referees and their assistants need to be wise to Tottenham's antics from now on because even though they proved they are a great side with their performance at Anfield that was more than worthy of a point, they now have a reputation for being the biggest divers in the Premier League.

"Yet I suspect you will not see too much coverage of this issue in the English newspapers because Kane and Alli are the stars of the England national team and with the World Cup around the corner, journalists will suck up to them and the English FA ahead of Russia 2018."
