'I hate to say it' - Thomas Tuchel points finger at Sadio Mane after Liverpool draw

Thomas Tuchel believes Liverpool forward Sadio Mane should have been shown a red card against Chelsea.

Liverpool drew 2-2 at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Sunday evening with Mane opening the scoring.

Mane challenged Cesar Azpilicueta for a header less than one minute in and caught the Chelsea captain’s face.

Tuchel and the Chelsea bench were furious when referee Anthony Taylor showed Mane a yellow card.

"I hate to say it because I love Mane and he is a nice guy and a top player, but it is a red card,” Tuchel said to Sky Sports in his post-match interview.

“The elbow is in the face - it doesn't matter if you do this after 20 seconds or 20 minutes."

Mane was allowed to stay on the pitch to open the scoring for the Reds before Mohamed Salah doubled their lead.

Chelsea pegged Liverpool back before half-time as the match was played out to a draw - helping Manchester City in the title race.
