Lee Dixon has told TalkSPORT (09:10am, Tuesday) that he believes Liverpool star Sadio Mane should have been sent off after picking up a yellow card for an elbow on Kieran Tierney – as the Reds cruised to a 3-1 win over Arsenal on Monday night.
Mane netted an equaliser after Alexandre Lacazette had put Arsenal 1-0 to the good. A mistake from Andy Robertson allowed Lacazette to score, only for Mo Salah’s shot to be parried to Mane who tapped home. Robertson made it 2-1.
Liverpool secured all three points with substitute and new signing Diogo Jota volleying an effort into the corner of the net. However, the result could have been very different had Lacazette scored when put through on goal – at 2-1.
Arsenal icon Dixon was asked if he felt Mane should have been sent off for the elbow, he responded by stating the Liverpool number 10 should have seen red – and if a decision had been left to VAR, then a red would have been given.
