Mason Mount getting an early yellow card was bad news in terms of tonight’s game, but also has implications beyond that.
The midfielder will now miss the second leg of this tie, and given how tight the game has been so far, that could be crucial.
Fans on social media picked out one replay that seemed to show that Mount actually made no contact on Joao Felix at all, and it was actually Mateo Kovacic who had fouled the Portuguese.
We’ll see if any kids of appeal are possible.
