Mourinho furious after Newcastle controversial equaliser: No respect for Spurs!

Newcastle United scored an injury-time equaliser against Tottenham thanks to another controversial handball decision.

Spurs could have been up 5-0 if it wasn't for an inspired performance from Toon goalkeeper Karl Darlow.

And they were made to pay for not extending their 1-0 advantage when Eric Dier was deemed to have handled Andy Carroll's header.

Dier had his arms in the air when he jumped to compete with Carroll, who headed the ball directly into his arm from inches away.

Callum Wilson stepped up to convert the 97th minute spot-kick to rescue a point for the visitors.

The Premier League stated at the start of the season they would give penalties if the ball struck a player's arm that was not next to his body.

Crystal Palace were also a victim of the bizarre rule this weekend, costing them a 2-1 loss to Everton.

But after storming down in the tunnel in disgust after Wilson's equaliser, Jose Mourinho attempted to restrain himself when asked about the game.

"I don't want to speak about it," the Portuguese said.

"The only feeling I am ready to share is that I don't feel Tottenham is respected according to what the club is. No respect.

"It is my feeling. You know it is the third club I have managed in the country, so happy so proud, so happy every day, I would not change it for any other job in the world but I feel it, I feel we deserve more respect."
