(Image) ‘Six stud marks down his chest’ – Mings plows boot into Gakpo’s chest but escapes red card

Posted by

Tyrone Mings can potentially count himself a very lucky man after being only shown a yellow card for a high boot challenge on Liverpool’s Cody Gakpo.

A challenge that had the commentators at Optus Sport remarking that the Dutchman had ‘six stud marks down his chest’ after briefly removing his shirt.

We’re not quite sure how the Aston Villa defender managed to avoid being handed his marching orders, though it certainly doesn’t help matters that the official, John Brooks, wasn’t asked to review the monitor.

  1. If the boot was on the other foot (pun intended) the LFC player would have seen a red.
    All I can say is that English refs are consistently inconsistent!!!!

    1. yeah what u said is true. but if tat spurs guy was send off earlier he wont be kick on the head if u have watch the whole game

  2. Completely agree it was a poor challenge mate but do think a yellow was fair enough. Few “interesting” decisions today mind, that’ll teach us eh

  3. We were never going to get much from Brooks. He was the 4th official involved in the confrontation with JK at the Spurs match.
