Liverpool have lost their appeal over the length of Sadio Mane’s three-match ban after he was sent off in
Saturday’s 5-0 defeat at Manchester City.
Mane was dismissed in the 37th minute after catching City goalkeeper Ederson in the face with a high foot.
He will now miss Premier League matches against Burnley and Leicester, as well as a trip to the latter in the EFL Cup.
The excessive punishment claim was rejected following an independent regulatory commission hearing.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said on Saturday that neither he nor City counterpart Pep Guardiola thought Mane should have been sent off.
