It was a pulsating spectacle from start to finish and it is perhaps better to focus on the finish, despite everything that had gone before – the goals for either team, the one that was not and the two red cards for Liverpool.
Curtis Jones was the first to depart for a late tackle on Yves Bissouma midway through the first half, a challenge that looked honest enough but increasingly bad on the replays, and Diogo Jota followed him on 69 minutes. On as a half-time substitute for Cody Gakpo, who was injured by a Destiny Udogie challenge and then aggravated the problem in the act of equalising for Liverpool, Jota let his team down.
