Liverpool to contest Jones’ dismissal at Spurs
  • Jones shown red card after VAR intervention
  • Ban would mean midfielder misses Merseyside derby
  • Liverpool suffered first loss of season after going down to nine men

Liverpool are set to contest the red card issued to Curtis Jones in the midst of their contentious 2-1 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur over the weekend.

Jones could face a three match ban

Jones was handed a red card for a challenge on Yves Bissouma in the 26th minute, following a video assistant referee (VAR) intervention. Initially, referee Simon Hooper had issued a yellow card, but upon reviewing the incident on the pitchside monitor, he altered his decision.

Midfielder Jones, 22, could potentially face a three-game suspension if the card is not overturned. In the event that the dismissal stands, he would be sidelined for Liverpool’s upcoming Premier League matches against Brighton, Everton, and Nottingham Forest.

Following a VAR decision that controversially disallowed a goal by Luis Diaz due to offside on Sunday, Liverpool released a statement expressing their dissatisfaction. They asserted that “sporting integrity has been undermined.” The referees’ governing body PGMOL, who admitted that the decision to disallow the goal was a “significant human error.”

Betting Implications

Punters looking to bet on Liverpool’s upcoming Premier League fixtures need to monitor this story to see if the card is rescinded or, if Jones will have to serve his suspension. If Jones does complete his ban, bettors will have to assess the impact his absence will have on Liverpool’s squad.
