West Brom boss Pulis baffled by Yacob dismissal

West Bromwich Albion boss Tony Pulis was baffled by Claudio Yacob's dismissal in their FA Cup defeat to Aston Villa.

Yacob was sent off for the Baggies for a challenge with Leandro Bacuna. Villa's Jack Grealish was also dismissed in injury time after collecting a second yellow card for diving.

Pulis said: "That's (Yacob) not a sending off.

"Yac has had three touches before he blows up. I thought the linesman had said something but I have spoken to Anthony (Taylor, referee) and he has made the decision.

"I don't know what Grealish got sent off for, I was amazed when he showed him the red card."
