Furious Liverpool Fans Adamant Vincent Kompany Should’ve Been Sent Off for Salah Tackle

Furious Liverpool Fans Adamant Vincent Kompany Should’ve Been Sent Off for Salah Tackle

Vincent Kompany was restored to the Manchester City starting line-up this evening but it wasn’t long before he was at the centre of controversy after a lunging tackle on Mo Salah on the half-hour mark.

The City club captain was used sparingly over the festive period, and only played in three matches throughout the whole of December, and he definitely looked like he was hungry to make up for lost time at the Etihad tonight.

Kompany was throwing himself into challenges left, right and centre but it was his clash with Salah which caused the biggest reaction, with referee Anthony Taylor quickly brandishing a yellow card to the 32-year-old.

Kompany looked outraged that he’d been booked but it’s fair to say there’s plenty of onlookers who reckon the Belgian was seriously lucky to stay on the pitch:

Do you think Kompany should’ve been sent off for his challenge? And, if so, how important could this be in the title race?
