The video showed a foul from Liverpool’s Fabinho on Newcastle’s Allan Saint-Maximin which referee Andre Marriner deemed to only be a yellow card for the Brazillian.
Should Fabinho have been awarded a red card?
However, the Toon Army were left furious at Marriner’s decision to only award a yellow card for the challenge with many believing it be worthy of a straight dismissal.
“This rule definitely needs to be changed. No intent to play the ball at all, potentially injures a player. Goes against the rules of the game and puts another player at risk of injury. Some lad suggested a 10 minute sin bin and I rate that idea, but it’s either that or a red imo”
Going by the reaction of these Newcastle fans it is clear they feel cheated by the officials in regards to the decision with many believing the incident to have been worthy of more than the yellow card which was awarded.
