On July 17, the British Press Express reported that “Madison received the strangest yellow card of all time. Maddison joined Spurs from Leicester City ahead of the season. It was a big signing. He had two goals and two assists in his first four games. He also started the game and proved to be a key part of Spurs’ defense.
As the outlet notes, “Maddison was not happy with the referee’s decision in the 22nd minute of the second half. He put his hands on his head and stood back to show his disbelief. The referee produced a yellow card in response to his reaction. Officials have been instructed to curb dissent among players this season. In total, the game saw 11 yellow cards (Tottenham 6, Sheffield 5) and one red card (Sheffield).
Meanwhile, the game ended in dramatic fashion. Tottenham took the lead in the 28th minute through Gustavo Hamer. However, Tottenham fought back in stoppage time with back-to-back goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Dejan Kuluczewski. Sheffield were left disappointed when Oliver McBurnie was sent off in stoppage time.
