“I’ve never seen him go in physically into a tackle. He definitely didn’t do it on purpose. I think he slipped and he caught him so that’s it.”
Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie Redknapp said it was undoubtedly a red card but also defended Dasilva.
Redknapp said: “Do I think it’s a red card? Yes, because he has endangered an opponent. But does he mean it? Absolutely not.
“I think he’s got the skill and he almost tries to chop it between his legs. But then almost loses control of his body and his right leg comes out. If you stop [the replay] it on the contact, it’s horrendous.
