Correct or wrong decision by the referee?
Absolutely correct decision for me. That was a horrendous tackle. There might have been no intent on part of mané but it was a dangerous tackle.
Correct decision sometimes you get lucky and only get a yellow but eyes on the ball or not your putting you foot up to head height in a 50-50 challenge which is dangerous if the ref has a good view of it you will walk.
It's ruined the game but ref had no choice.
There was no intent but he had to go. You can't jump with studs raised that high when there are other players around. It shares some similarities with Nani's red card against Madrid.
I think they're slightly different as I don't think Nani knew there was someone coming in but Mane knew the keeper was coming but you put your foot up that high if you connect with someone you are going off.
Seems to be injured a lot
Dunno he got injured towards the end of last season and missed about 6 weeks but he also missed about 2 months playing at the African Nations this season he's missed 3 games with the ban for the high foot and now he'll miss 4-6 weeks.
With Lallana already out Liverpool will probably need to change things up a bit my guess is Can will come back into the midfield 3 and Coutinho will play from the left, Salah from the right and Firmino up the middle.
