According to latest reports, Liverpool will appeal against Sadio Mane’s three-match ban for his dismissal against Manchester City after he plunged into City goalkeeper Ederson.
The Senegalese winger raised his foot and clashed with City goalkeeper Ederson in Liverpool’s 5-0 defeat on Saturday.
The Reds have the option to claim excessive punishment which could see Mane’s ban reduced by either one or two matches.
The Brazilian goalkeeper needed eight minutes of treatment before he was taken off on a stretcher wearing an oxygen mask. However, he is unlikely to return to the pitch soon except probably with a facial mask.
