Mac Allister’s Three-Match Ban Overturned

Published August 24, 2023

Liverpool midfielder Mac Allister has successfully appealed the three-match ban he was issued following his red card against Bournemouth on Saturday at Anfield for challenging Ryan Christie with his studs – an incident which saw Allister receive a red card and result in him being dismissed from playing against Bournemouth 3-1. Allister was sent off for challenging Ryan Christie with his studs during a 3-1 win for Liverpool over their Championship opponent.

Referee Thomas Bramall judged the challenge as reckless, and many on social media strongly disapproved. Now, following an independent regulatory commission review process, the FA has overturned its ban.

Argentine midfielder Mac Allister’s three-match ban has been overturned

Liverpool were able to keep Mac Allister on the pitch for their 3-1 victory against Bournemouth on Saturday after successfully appealing his red card. The Argentine midfielder had been shown off after challenging Ryan Christie 58 minutes into the match; this decision by referee Scott Thompson has been widely questioned given its nature and many similar challenges being passed over this season without punishment in Premier League matches.

Appeal was heard and decided in favor of the Reds by an independent regulatory commission and announced on social media platform X.

Mitrovic was found guilty of breaking Article 96 of the FA’s disciplinary rules by pushing an official. Mitrovic responded angrily when Chris Kavanagh consulted VAR before awarding Fulham a penalty and sending off Willian; when leaving the pitch he pushed off-field referee as well as screaming into his face before being deducted points for misconduct.

Jurgen Klopp’s midfielder will be available for Sunday’s game against Newcastle

Mac Allister will be back for Liverpool’s Premier League clash against Newcastle on Sunday after successfully appealing his red card from Saturday’s 3-1 home win against Bournemouth. Referee Thomas Bramall dismissed Allister for a high tackle with his studs showing against Ryan Christie during his Anfield debut, sending him off during a high tackle that sent shockwaves through Anfield.

After the game, many critics voiced displeasure with this decision as it appeared not to be dangerous. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp called it harsh and promised his club would appeal, yet an independent regulatory commission later found in favour of Mac Allister on Tuesday.

Klopp will find this news immensely reassuring as his options in central midfield remain limited with Thiago Alcantara and Stefan Bajcetic still injured and new signing Wataru Endo yet to make an appearance for Liverpool. With Mac Allister on board, Klopp can rotate his squad ahead of an important game at St James’ Park.

Mac Allister’s red card against Bournemouth has been rescinded

Liverpool midfielder Alexis Mac Allister’s red card in Saturday’s 3-1 victory against Bournemouth has been reversed after successful appeal proceedings were lodged by the club against this decision. He had been dismissed due to an excessive high tackle on Ryan Christie at 58 minutes during a match heavilly favoured by Liverpool fans.

Bournemouth manager Andoni Iraola even stated post-match that ‘it didn’t appear as though a red card should have been shown’.

Mac Allister has been an essential member of Liverpool’s midfield in their first two games this season and has distinguished himself with his ability to patiently build play and link the team. Additionally, his tackling has improved and can read games to quickly regain possession when necessary.

Former referee Mike Dean agreed with this assessment on Soccer Saturday. He commented, stating ‘There wasn’t too much force, but I think they went in quite high with their studs showing and caught him on the shin.’

Mac Allister’s appeal against his red card has been successful

Mac Allister will now be eligible to return for Liverpool in their next three Premier League matches following his red card against Bournemouth last weekend being overturned. The Argentine midfielder, signed from Brighton this summer in a PS35m deal, had initially been sent off due to a challenge on Ryan Christie that saw him dismissed.

Mac Allister may not be known for his crossing abilities, but he excels as a link player and carrying the ball well into central areas. Additionally, his patience when building attacks allows him to use first-time bounce passes to find runners behind.

Liverpool will need their advanced midfielders to play an essential role if they adopt their 3-box-3 formation. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Fabinho have been playing further forward recently, yet Jurgen Klopp will expect them to still cover any gaps when necessary – Mac Allister would make an ideal partner here; capable of dropping deep but also finding runners from left inside channels.
