Alexis Mac Allister becomes second Liverpool signing sent off on Anfield debut in two years and forces Wataru Endo bow

Alexis Mac Allister received a straight red card on his home debut for Liverpool due to a high boot against Bournemouth.

The Argentine received his marching orders in the 58th minute for a high boot on Ryan Christie, and is now set to miss the Reds next three games.

Mac Allister makes it two seasons in a row that a Liverpool player has been sent off on their home debut, following Darwin Nunez who headbutted Joachim Andersen against Crystal Palace.

The transgression forced manager Jurgen Klopp to bring on new signing Wataru Endo in Mac Allister’s place, with the Japan international making his debut after joining from Stuttgart just a day earlier.

Thankfully for Klopp, Liverpool were 2-1 up against the Cherries at the time, and despite being reduced to ten men, made things even more comfortable minutes later when Diogo Jota made it 3-1.
