LIV 2-2 MCI: Main Reason Paul Tierney Refused To Give James Milner A Red Card

The 29 year old, who netted for the seventh consecutive game, took his tally to nine goals in as many appearances in all competitions following another virtuoso display.

But An field only have five minutes to celebrate and savor the individual genius of Salah before the Liverpool fans were silenced.

With Foden causing chaos on the left, they kept pushing forward until the ball fell for Kevin De Bruyne, who fired the ball into the net with the help of a Joel Matip deflection to make it 2-2.

However, there where a moment in the game Liverpool could have be reduced to ten men after the already booked James Milner made a clunky challenge on Bernando Silva that left Pep Guardiola absolutely furious. It was a clear yellow card yet for some reason, Paul Tierney didn't give it and neither do VAR care to call him for a second look.

Liverpool and Manchester city draw at Anfield is thoroughly entertaining and it was just great all round game that warrant not any red card to spoil the momentum.

This is the main reason why Paul Tierney have a rethink to make a wise decision not to give Milner a red card so as for football fans to enjoy the game.
