Tottenham’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg received a terrible tackle from Brentford’s Josh Dasilva during the Carabao Cup semi-final.
With Brentford trailing 2-0, Dasilva launched into a challenge with Hojbjerg and ran over the ball, hitting the midfielder’s shin.
He was left with blood running down his shin and his teammates had to calm him down, while José Mourinho reportedly called the entry “a disgrace” on the touchline.
Not having seen the incident in real time, Mike Dean was encouraged to review it on the VAR monitor and quickly decided to brandish the red card.
Despite trying to keep playing, the Denmark international had to be replaced by Japhet Tanganga and then headed straight for the tunnel for treatment.
