    INCIDENT: Erling Haaland caught Joachim Andersen in the head with a high boot as both went for the ball. No card was shown to the Man City striker.

    DERMOT’S VERDICT: Correct decision.


    DERMOT SAYS: “I don’t think it’s a red card. It’s a genuine attempt by a player to play the ball. Andersen throws himself in and he’s allowed to do that, but I don’t think Haaland sees him, his boot is up.

    “If the referee gives a free kick and a yellow card, it’s enough. It’s reckless, but it’s certainly not dangerous and he hasn’t gone to hurt the player.”

    What is the difference between this incident and a similar one between between Sadio Mane and Ederson in 2017 when Mane was sent off?

    “One of the differences would be the speed and intensity with which Mane and Ederson ran towards each other. With this one, it’s almost like Andersen comes into Haaland’s space – he doesn’t see him, he doesn’t know he’s there. Mane knew that Ederson was there.
