Alexis Mac Allister’s red card has been overturned - meaning he’s available for Liverpool’s clash against Newcastle United.
The Reds midfielder was sent off for a tackle on Ryan Christie in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Bournemouth. However, Liverpool appealed the decision as they - like many others - felt the red card was harsh.
That has proven successful, meaning that Mac Allister will not serve a three-match ban. A Liverpool statement said: “Alexis Mac Allister will not serve a suspension after a successful appeal against the red card he received during Saturday’s victory over AFC Bournemouth.
“The Liverpool midfielder was sent off in the second half of the Premier League fixture following a tackle on Ryan Christie.
“A club appeal against the suspension has now been upheld by an Independent Regulatory Commission, meaning Mac Allister is eligible for selection when the Reds travel to Newcastle United on Sunday.”
