Chris Sutton has offered his opinion on Liverpool midfielder Alexis Mac Allister, who was sent off in Saturday afternoon’s Premier League game against Bournemouth at Anfield.
The former Chelsea striker has said more BBC Sports that Alexis Mac Allister should not have been sacked during Liverpool’s Premier League game against Bournemouth at Anfield.
Liverpool won the game 3-1.
However, the Reds suffered a scare in the opening minutes of the second half as they dropped to 10 men.
Mac Allister, who joined Liverpool from Brighton and Hove Albion in the summer transfer window, has been sent off.
Verdict to dismiss Alexis Mac Allister for Liverpool v Bournemouth
The Argentine international midfielder who won the World Cup in Qatar in 2022 was judged making a high tackle on Ryan Christie.
BBC sport pundit Sutton doesn’t think Mac Allister should have been sent off.
Sutton said: “An important three-point for Liverpool. It took them a while to get going, but they showed real urgency.
“I thought McAllister’s dismissal was a shocking decision.
“They had to work hard for that.”
And as you can see below, former Tottenham Hotspur striker Gary Lineker agrees.
It was a controversial decision but Liverpool will be happy the incident ended up not having an impact on the final score.
Liverpool were the better side and deservedly took all three points from the encounter.
The Reds could win the Premier League title if they maintain this form and keep winning games.
