Please log in or register with your social account Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has bemoaned the ‘double whammy’ of James Tomkins giving away a game-changing free kick before confronting the referee in the tunnel post-match, resulting in a booking which sees him suspended for the visit of Leicester next week.

Following the game, Hodgson revealed Tomkins couldn’t stop himself from cornering the official in the London Stadium tunnel and, alongside star man Wilfried Zaha, will now miss the clash with Leicester having been shown a fifth caution of the season.

You already have an account.

"Tomkins is still so upset by it that after the game he couldn’t resist the temptation to tell the referee again that he had made the wrong decision, he got himself booked and is out of the next game so that was a double whammy, a real double whammy."

"Certainly one of the goals can be contested for the free kick," Hodgson said.

The former West Ham defender was penalised after referee Anthony Taylor was adjudged to have fouled Andy Carroll on the edge of the box, a free kick from which the host’s second goal resulted.

"In the way we played it was often better in the second half, it was more open, we certainly had our moments in attack and they had theirs, but matches are won by goals, they got three we only got two so that’s nothing one can say, there is no clever analysis which changes anything."
