“Revealed” Games will Curtis Jones miss after Tottenham game appeal outcome

The Reds filed an appeal in response to the midfielder’s dismissal from Saturday’s game against Spurs.

Curtis Jones’ three-match suspension has been confirmed by Liverpool after his attempt to have the red card he got against Tottenham Hotspur rejected.

The Reds were planning to appeal the red card Jones received during their contentious loss at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday night, it was revealed on Monday afternoon. After winning a 50/50 contest with Yves Bissouma in the 26th minute, the midfielder was first given a yellow card by referee Simon Hooper for allowing his foot to roll over the top and down onto the Malian’s ankle.


Hooper upgraded his choice after VAR intervention, though, after being instructed by Darren England to look at the monitor. According to the ECHO, the original ruling was reversed because Jones’ studs were visible and made contact with the area above the ankle, which caused an offense that authorities deemed to be major foul play.


However, the Reds’ request to have the red card reversed was denied, and Jones will now miss this month’s games against Brighton & Hove Albion, Everton, and Nottingham Forest. Due to his dismissal on Saturday for receiving two yellow cards, Diogo Jota will also be suspended for one match.


After the game on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp expressed his opinion that it was incorrect to dismiss the midfielder.


“Red card for Curtis,” he added, “I think everyone in this room thinks it’s a clear red card.” I have a distinct way of thinking since, unlike the majority of you, I played football.
