Patrice Evra has claimed Dave Kitson deserved to be sent off for his studs-first tackle on the Manchester United man at Old Trafford.

Kitson has pleaded with referee Rob Styles to look at his challenge again after spending just 37 seconds on the field as a substitute before he was sent packing.

"I went to kick the ball and I just saw his foot coming towards me," recalled the France international. "I don´t understand why he did it. It was very bad. It is the right decision to send him off."
