Should Jamaal Lascelles have been sent off for his foul on Laurent Depoitre?

Last weekend Huddersfield fans were frustrated at Arsenal.

David Wagner’s side had two good penalty shouts against the Gunners which were both waved away.

Against Newcastle, many Huddersfield supporters felt the Magpies should have been reduced to 10 men in the first half.

In the 34th minute, Huddersfield forward Laurent Depoitre nicked the ball past Toon captain Jamaal Lascelles down the touchline.

Lascelles completely missed the ball, but the defender wiped out Depoitre.

Depoitre was lucky to avoid any serious injury after Lascelles took him out.

Not only did Lascelles commit a two-footed challenge, but the Newcastle defender’s legs were also high.

Yet Lascelles managed to escape with just a yellow card.

That booking also means Lascelles will face no further punishment.
