Liverpool’s new signing Joe Cole was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Gunners debutant Laurent Koscielny just before half-time in the match against Arsenal.
Liverpool however went on to take the lead through striker David Ngog but surrendered the lead in the dying minutes of the match thanks to a Pepe Reina blunder. The match ended 1-1.
Joe Cole is not known to be a hard tackler but the tackle could have left Koscielny with a broken leg.
However the central defender was able to recover quickly and join rest of his team-mates. The ironic part is Koscielny was shown the red card in the 2nd half of the match of a second bookable offense.
