Liverpool fans adamant Mane shouldn’t have been sent off in City defeat

Manchester City destroyed 10-man Liverpool 5-0 on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium, blowing away their visitors with a second half blitz after a controversial first forty-five minutes.

City started the game brightly and found themselves 1-0 up in a competitive match before referee John Moss changed the entire match with his decision to send off Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane in the 37th minute.

It’s a decision that has sparked wild debate on social media with viewers around the world weighing in on whether they deemed it to be sending off or not.

Liverpool fans seem certain though, with the majority believing there was no way Mane should have had his marching orders. The red card has enraged Reds fans, who had to endure their side conceding another four goals before the end of the match.
