Commentary "Had To Turn Away" From Replays Of Richarlison's Horrific Red Card Tackle On Thiago

Richarlison's red card challenge on Thiago during Everton vs Liverpool was so horrific, BT Sport's Steve McManaman couldn't watch the replays.

Both players contested for a loose ball at Goodison Park and Richarlison planted his boot into Thiago's shin.

Referee Michael Oliver stepped in to send the Brazilian off while the duo rolled around on the floor in agony.

The incident was replayed and McManaman, who was on commentary for the game, told viewers: "I have to turn away."

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp addressed the challenge at full-time and he wasn't pleased.

"It's not only a red card for Richarlison but a massive foul on Thiago," he explained.

"It doesn't look good and we don't know what he has."

The game was full of incident and Sadio Mane put the Reds ahead inside three minutes with a tidy finish.

But the controversy would begin in the 11th minute as Virgil van Dijk was clattered by Toffees goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Michael Keane headed home an equaliser just over five minutes later to draw Carlo Ancelotti's side level.

Mohamed Salah edged Liverpool ahead in the second half before Dominic Calvert-Lewin once again levelled the scores.

Everton players looked heartbroken as the current Premier League champions celebrated, but there would be one more twist.

VAR ruled Mane was offside in the build-up, meaning the goal did not stand.

A draw means Everton still remain top of the league and unbeaten this campaign, while Liverpool are currently in third place.
