Why Nelson Semedo was sent off vs Liverpool as referee U-turn explained


Wolves defender Nelson Semedo was sent off for serious foul play for his first-half challenge on Liverpool midfielder Alexis Mac Allister.

The ECHO understands that after being instructed to review his on-field decision, the tackle was deemed to have crossed over the threshold to be deemed to have endangered the safety of an opponent or used excessive force. The incident occurred shortly before the half-hour mark when the two players collided, with the Argentine coming off worse after being caught on his ankle.

Chris Kavanagh initially showed a yellow card for the tackle, but he was directed to review the decision and swiftly swapped yellow for red, sending the 30-year-old for an early bath after checking the pitchside monitor. Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher was on commentary and felt the Portuguese full-back could have no complaints.
