There was a nasty moment in the 67th minute of the FA Youth Cup tie between Manchester United and Liverpool this afternoon, in a moment that was lucky not to see anyone seriously hurt.
Liverpool Under-18s talent James Norris knocked the ball forward a little too much, which left the youngster to slide in recklessly on United substitute Marc Jurado at full pelt.
The late slide tackle was pretty high and it was no surprise to see Norris shown a straight red card, it doesn’t seem that former Barcelona academy star Jurado suffered an injury at this moment in time.

Wouldn’t be an FA Youth Cup game between United + Liverpool without a red card.
James Norris sent off for a flying lunge on Marc Jurado.
United have been much the better side second half + have 20mins to turn this around with man advantage #MUFC
