Liverpool To Appeal Jones' Red Card In Defeat At Tottenham

Liverpool To Appeal Jones' Red Card In Defeat At Tottenham

Liverpool are preparing to appeal against the red card given to Curtis Jones during their controversial 2-1 defeat at Tottenham on Saturday.

Jones was sent off for fouling Yves Bissouma in the 26th minute after a VAR intervention.

Referee Simon Hooper initially gave the 22-year-old midfielder a yellow card for the challenge, but changed his decision after going to the pitchside monitor.

Head Jurgen Klopp, after the defeat in north London, said: "He [Jones] had full power on the ball, rolls over the ball and then he hits the decisive part of the leg.

"When you see it in slow motion it looks horrendous, but when you see it in real time it's not even that close to being bad. It wasn't even close to being on purpose.

"The game is in real time but we judge it in slow motion."

Jones faces a three-game ban if the red card is not overturned and would sit out Liverpool's Premier League games against Brighton, Everton and Nottingham Forest if the dismissal is upheld.
