Fans are convinced Andy Robertson deserved a red card for dangerous tackle on Adama Traore
| Last updated
Andy Robertson has outraged fans after landing a dangerous tackle on Adama Traore during Liverpool vs. Wolves on Saturday.
Liverpool were held to a 2-2 draw at home to Wolves in a thrilling FA Cup third round clash at Anfield.
Alisson made a huge blunder to allow Goncalo Guedes to tap into an empty net, with Darwin Nunez levelling just before the break.
Mohamed Salah put his side in the lead with a tidy finish, but the visitors hit back through Hwang Hee-chan and were then denied a winner when VAR controversially ruled out Toti Gomes' goal.
Fans online also reckon Liverpool were lucky to avoid a red card following Robertson's clumsy challenge on Traore in the closing stages of the match.

The Wolves forward bundled to the ground following Ibrahima Konate's challenge, with the Scottish left-back attempting to hurdle over the stricken opponent.
But he failed and landed on Traore's face in a grim-looking collision, leaving fans shocked that he wasn't shown a red card.
One Twitter user wrote: "Last 3 games he’s put in dangerous challenges and not once been pulled up."
A second tweeted: "Could have easily missed him if he wanted to. 100% intentional."
A third added: "Imagine the outrage had this been the other way round."
A fourth said: "That has to be a retrospective red card?"
A fifth slammed: "Disgraceful, so easy to move your feet and land elsewhere with them!"
Another commented: "How on earth that wasn’t a red."
Match referee Andy Madley didn't even brandish a yellow card as the Liverpool star escaped any punishment.
Robertson will be available for the replay which is expected to take place later this month.
Should he have been sent off for his challenge on Traore? Let us know what you think.
