Liverpool’s Andy Robertson avoids red card after elbow to the back of Tom Davies’ head

Liverpool defender Andy Robertson was fortunate to escape without even a booking when he appeared to elbow Everton’s Tom Davies in the back of the head during the Merseyside derby on Wednesday night.
It was an excellent evening for the Reds at Anfield as they comfortably beat their old rivals 5-2 to reopen an eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League.
It could have been different, though, if referee Mike Dean had seen Robertson’s challenge on Davies differently, just 16 minutes into the game.
The Scotland captain had already fouled Davies, who went to ground, and as Robertson fell on top of him he appeared to force his elbow into the back of the Everton man’s head. The full-back claimed innocence and that he just accidentally fell that way, but it looked suspicious in real time and even worse on slow-motion replay.

Robertson got up after the incident and immediately started laughing in Davies’ face, before Mason Holgate pushed him away.
No cards were dished out and all that came of it was an Everton free-kick, but Robertson was potentially very lucky to escape without serious punishment.
