TALKING POINT MANÉ’S COL­LI­SION WITH EDER­SON

The Observer - Sport - - FOOTBALL -

The de­ci­sion by Jon Moss to send off Sa­dio Mané for a high chal­lenge in the 37th minute on Eder­son po­larised opin­ions. “Rub­bish de­ci­sion to send off Mané. Rub­bish,” tweeted Gary Lineker. Sky Sports pun­dit Gary Neville crit­i­cised the ref­eree: “Jon Moss, you have just ru­ined the game there. He didn’t need to give a red card.” The for­mer Pre­mier League ref­eree Gra­ham Poll dis­agreed. “It was an easy de­ci­sion. It’s a red card. In­tent is not rel­e­vant.” Mané is the first Liver­pool player to be sent off in 58 games, since Brad Smith against Swansea in May 2016.
