Wijnaldum: Man City found 5-0 Liverpool win 'difficult'

Cape Town - Liverpool will appeal the length of Sadio Mane's three-match ban following his red card on Saturday against Manchester City, according to reports.

The FA met to judge whether or not the Senegalese global should have his ban reduced and chose to uphold the original sanction, said the BBC. Everyone is in agreement that he very clearly had his eyes firmly on the ball and made an honest attempt to poke it past the on-rushing keeper, however this doesn't just make it a yellow card.

However, the worldwide break seems to have broken their flow as they were brought back down to earth by the ruthless Manchester City who ran out 5-0 winners.

City's Ederson was seeing leaving the Etihad with a bandage over his face.

Liverpool will have to make do without influential attacker Sadio Mane for their next three domestic matches after their appeal to reduce the Senegal international's suspension was rejected by the Football Association on Tuesday (September 12).

Mane will miss this weekend's Premier League visit of Burnley plus the Carabao Cup/league double-header with Leicester next week.

Mane is one of the best players in the current Liverpool team and knows the Premier League inside out.

"It should have been a red card, it was a red card, it's a three-match ban, take your medicine and on you go", he said.

Klopp, who confirmed Loris Karius will start in goal against Sevilla when Liverpool return to the Champions League group stages tomorrow night, was ambivalent about the outcome and said the appeal amounted to a waste of time.
