For me it wasn't a red. Would a player have been sent off if it was a foot instead of the calf? I reckon not. Very harsh red. Also why wasn't koscielny sent off for bringing down lukaku. He was the last man. The ref was shite imo.
He could have avoided it by not going into the tackle but the ball was there to be won, infact i think he came away with it really. It looked bad because in effect he was stood on his leg but i fail to see how hw could have not done without pulling out.
Such a shame he will miss the derby because everything positive went through Pogba yesterday. For me Bellerin’s tackle attempt was so unnatural, so the position he had his leg at just made it impossible for Pogba to get out for the way with his momentum.
So Pep and City strike lucky again. All these late winners, running on the pitch and avoiding an FA ban and now playing your nearest rival who won’t have their most influential player. It’s all going their way at the minute.
I don't think Pogba had any intent at all, it was just unlucky his foot landed where it did. I don't think he had anywhere else to actually go with it. Ball was there to be won and Bellerin was all over the place.
So that's him out for City (H), Bournemouth (H) & WBA (A)
It's such a shame as he was really building up a head of steam after that injury, you'd think even without him they'll fancy beating Bournemuth and WBA but beating City has just got a lot harder and it's going to need a massive effort from everyone to do that.
Normally players wait another 2 weeks before they get their red cards so they can book their Xmas holidays
