Red card for Liverpool FC's Sadio Mane against Manchester City divides opinions

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane's collision with Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes was an accident and did not merit a red card in their Premier League clash yesterday, Reds manager Jurgen Klopp insisted.

"You can win games like this, but we had no chance against City with one man down. We were unlucky, hopefully this year [De Bruyne's shooting] can help us". "I don't know if it was a red card".

"We're not going to win any trophies this season".

Pep Guardiola's side are now second in the Premier League, behind rivals Manchester United only on goal difference on ten points.

Guardiola is not short of playmaking options, having deployed David Silva in tandem with De Bruyne in every game so far this term, while close-season arrival Bernardo Silva was an unused substitute against Liverpool.

"With one man down it was a hard situation at half-time because I was so positive about the opportunity we should still have", he said.

Of course, that will not satisfy some and there is a defensible argument in saying the rules should favour those who look to play the ball and not the man.

Asked whether he would appeal Klopp said: "Can we?" "It would be another waste of time, like the game today". The general impression was that he didn't think there was too much to read into the game, though, as he said he will try to "ignore the result" since "one man down against City, it is really not the best place to be".

"In the end it was a red card I am sure enough people will find enough reasons to say it was the right decision".

"You can defend not perfectly and still win 5-0".

"The guys who have come in have a very physical quality, they are very strong, very pacy". City can come late and then they pass between the lines.
