Video: Watch Neby Keita’s brutal foul on Jesse Lingard that should have been red card – Ref only gave him yellow card

Liverpool utterly dominated Manchester United in the 4-0 derby win at Anfield on Tuesday night, but their midfielder Naby Keita could perhaps count himself a tad lucky not to be shown a red card after a stamp on Jesse Lingard late on.

By the time the foul occurred, a red card would have made little difference. Liverpool had scored twice in the first half, with Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah finishing off eviscerating moves, and then added two more in the second period through Sadio Mane and that man Salah once more.

As Keita and Lingard contested a loose ball with just three minutes of normal time to go, Keita came in over the top and planted his studs on the calf of Jesse Lingard, who reacted by writhing around on the ground.
