Ex-ref Poll says Man Utd striker Van Persie deserved red
"The Dutchman knew he was in trouble; he jumped up insisting that he had played the ball. He had but was certainly not in control of his forward motion and the follow through wiped Reid out.
"Had he not made contact with the ball he should have had a straight red card, as he did, a yellow card was appropriate and therefore a red for a second cautionable offence."
