The notion of challenging the red card was dismissed as a "waste of time" by Klopp at his post-match news conference but the Football Association confirmed they had rejected a Liverpool claim of "excessive punishment" on Tuesday.

Mane, 25, will now be suspended for Liverpool's Premier League match against Burnley and the league and League Cup "double-header" with Leicester City.

Although Mane will be unavailable for the Reds in the next three Premier League games, the winger is available to feature in the Champions League. It was a waste of time'.

"Our appeal was right because we would have appealed the red card but we didn't".

'We appealed the length of the suspension. "But actually I never thought [a reduction in the ban] would happen, only because I am used to things like this". There were a lot of situations which were similar.

It will be great to hear that Champions League anthem being played at Anfield again tomorrow night, with this competition meaning more than any other to the club's fans. And obviously Ederson was not lucky. And obviously Ederson was not lucky.

"They were very much in the game until Mane got sent off", said Souness, who was speaking at a British Heart Foundation event at St Thomas' Hospital. It's like it is. I don't blame the referee for the decision. If I saw the boy bleeding I would have made the same decision.

Ederson, meanwhile, quickly assured supporters that he was OK after the game, showcasing just cuts and bruises to his face, and he trained with the City squad as normal on Tuesday. And then are the all players happy with the decision?

In a separate Echo article he said: "I think we have proved it already we are stronger than we were in the final".

He came back to preparing, wearing a defensive head protector like those utilized by Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech, and plans to begin their Group F opener against the Dutch champions in Rotterdam.
