Football has advanced past the days of a player getting away with a reducer type challenge because they got something on the ball, and Harry Maguire is a very lucky boy here.

There are comparisons to be made with the horrible challenge that Jordan Pickford left on Virgil van Dijk a few weeks ago, and Lucas Digne could have been seriously injured:
