Ex-ref Poll: Man City keeper Bravo should've been sent off

Former Premier League ref Graham Poll says Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo should've been sent off in victory at Manchester United.

Poll wrote for the Daily Mail: "Jose Mourinho was absolutely right to be critical of referee Mark Clattenburg's failure to award Manchester United a penalty after Claudio Bravo flew studs-first into Wayne Rooney.

"Clattenburg felt the City keeper had played the ball but he knows that whenever a player dives into a challenge with both feet off the ground, out of control, a foul must be given.

"If the ball is played cleanly then a yellow card is issued but if the opponent is caught, solely or as well as the ball, a red card should be shown."
