Anthony Taylor upgraded a yellow card to a straight red for Paul Pogba’s studs-up tackle against Naby Keita in the second-half of Liverpool’s visit to Old Trafford.
The official had initially only cautioned the French international but changed his decision after being advised to review the incident by VAR on a monitor, which clearly displayed the Red Devil catching the No.8 above the ball.
The Guinean international was stretchered off the pitch, with Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain coming on to replace him, in what Reds fans will undoubtedly be hoping isn’t another serious injury for a midfielder.
