Exciting news for Liverpool fans! The red card shown to midfielder Alexis Mac Allister during their match against Bournemouth has been successfully appealed.
This means that Mac Allister is now available to face Newcastle United in their upcoming Premier League clash.
In the 58th minute of the game at Anfield, Mac Allister was shown a straight red card for his challenge on Ryan Christie.
However, the decision was widely criticized as it was deemed a mistake by both Jurgen Klopp and football fans.
The challenge did not fall into the dangerous category, with both players having their boots off the ground.
Despite the numerical disadvantage, Liverpool managed to secure a 3-1 win over Bournemouth.
Following the match, Liverpool immediately expressed their intention to appeal the three-match ban imposed on Mac Allister.
The club believed that the red card was unjustified and they were determined to overturn the suspension.
Thankfully, an independent panel reviewed the incident and sided with Liverpool.
A statement from the Merseyside club confirmed the successful appeal, stating, ‘Alexis Mac Allister will not serve a suspension after a successful appeal against the red card he received during Saturday’s victory over AFC Bournemouth.’
This exciting development means that Mac Allister will now be eligible for selection in the upcoming matches against Newcastle United, Aston Villa, and Wolves.
The first test for the Argentine midfielder will be the crucial clash at St James’ Park on Sunday.
Liverpool fans can look forward to seeing Mac Allister back on the pitch and contributing to the team’s success.
