Manchester United

Diogo Dalot is sent off for an odd “double dissent” infraction, which has left everyone perplexed.

A strange red card was given to Diogo Dalot in the closing seconds of Manchester United’s goalless draw with Liverpool.

Referee Michael Oliver sent off Dalot with only a few seconds left in Sunday’s Premier League match at Anfield.

Although Liverpool was heavily favored going into the game, they were unable to generate clear-cut opportunities against Erik ten Hag’s team.

It was a disappointing game for the home team as Jurgen Klopp’s team was inefficient and mostly restricted to long-range efforts.

Darwin Nunez looked to have committed three bookable offenses in a little period of time, thus he was fortunate to escape a red card in the first half.

However, United would finish the game with just 10 men after Oliver gave Dalot the order to march off late in the contest.

Dalot and Mohamed Salah engaged in a ball-swapping contest in the third minute of extra time at the conclusion of the second half.

Even though Salah seemed to touch the ball the last before it was out of play, Liverpool was given a throw-in in a risky area.

Dalot was furious over the ruling and yelled at the referee.

Oliver appeared to have resolved the issue after showing the Portugal international a yellow card.

However, the referee blew his whistle and gave the United defender a second yellow card.

Replays revealed that, despite the initial confusion, Dalot had persisted in expressing his displeasure to Oliver, which resulted in a second yellow card for disobedience.

The choice left United manager Erik ten Hag absolutely perplexed, and defender Raphael Varane appeared astounded as well.

Dalot went down late, but United managed to hang on and earn an important point away from home.

United is now six points outside of the top four and still in seventh place.

Liverpool is currently in second place, one point behind Arsenal, the new league leaders, who defeated Brighton 2-0 earlier in the day.
