#CHELIV: Christensen’s Red Card Was The Game Changer, Lampard Reacts To Liverpool Defeat—The blues were defeated in the match against Liverpool 2-0 and their manager, Frank Lampard said he knew Andreas Christensen would be sent off, after he fouled a goal-bound Sadio Mane.
The Genius Media Nigeria report that Referee Paul Tierney who had initially given the player a yellow card for hauling down Mane, who was clean through on goal, reverted it to a red card after looking at the pitch-side VAR monitor.
Lampard said “The red card changes the face of the game, the talk I do at half-time. It forced me into a reshuffle and it was always going to be difficult after that.
“I think it could be given or not. I was perhaps surprised it was given as a yellow first. If it was given as a red straight away, you continue with that.
“We showed moments on the counter-attack when we were dangerous in the first half. My team talk was to be more confident on the ball, but thered card changed the whole team talk.”
