'It's a clear red' - Azpilicueta & Tuchel fume over early Mane challenge in Chelsea draw with Liverpool

 The Blues were angered after the forward escaped an early dismissal for an elbow on the defender

Cesar Azpilicueta and Thomas Tuchel both insisted that Sadio Mane should have been handed a straight red card for his opening-minute challenge in Chelsea's 2-2 Premier League draw with Liverpool.

The Blues skipper was elbowed in the face by the Reds attacker almost immediately after the whistle went as the two jumped for a high ball, but Mane escaped with only a yellow card and subsequently netted the visitors' opener at Stamford Bridge.

Mohamed Salah doubled the lead before Mateo Kovacic and Christian Pulisic struck back to tie things up in a draw that damaged both teams' hopes of a title challenge against Manchester City.
