Evans should have seen red along with Shelvey, claims Liverpool boss Rodgers

The story is too old to be commented.

The difference was Evans went for the ball Shelvey went for the man.

not exactly. they both went for the ball. difference is evans got to the ball. shelvey got evans legs.

So what you're saying is it's ok to go in two footed and studs up at the risk of breaking someone's leg?

we not saying that. we not saying evans was totally innocent either. they both lunged for a 50/50 ball. had shelvey got their first and evans into shelvey, i have no doubt evans would've got a red card. however, in the context of the match, evans won the ball shelvey didn't and it looked a bad tackle.
