Bournemouth striker Wilson: Tielemans deserved red-card

Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson says Youri Tielemans should've been sent off in Saturday's 3-1 loss to Leicester City.

Wilson was the victim of a nasty tackle from Tielemans, but VAR that it was only worthy of a yellow card.

He told the Daily Echo: "I have seen it back and I still think it's a stonewall red.

"It's a bad challenge. He has tried to protect himself and shield the ball but he's gone straight over the top of it – not even looking at the ball from what I've seen as well.

"He's not meant it but, at the end of the day, it's a naughty challenge."
