Brighton striker Maupay says Burnley midfielder Westwood deserved red

Brighton striker Neal Maupay says Burnley midfielder Ashley Westwood deserved a red card during yesterday's 1-1 draw.

Westwood was shown a yellow card by referee Michael Oliver for the tackle that left Maupay with a cut head.

It emerged after the match that Oliver had consulted the VAR team after booking Westwood.

Asked by talkSPORT afterwards if he thought it was a red card offence, he said: "I didn't see the replay but if I only look at my face, I would say yes.

"But we have VAR and the referees can check the decision they make. If they say yellow, we can't really say much."
