There was a similar challenge on Mane a few moments after that which wasn't pulled up, someone put a similar challenge on Greenwood in our game last night, which wasnt called either.No chance. Glad the guy showed remorse and all of that but no chance that gets rescinded.
Scissor tackles from behind have been 'outlawed' for some time. He came late also. No malice but doesn't matter.
Even Wan-Bissaka puts those challenges in twice a game and he is almost never booked. So I do think its more to do with the outcome than the actual tackle. Elliots foot being planted resulted in him copping the full impact of the tackle, which is very unfortunate.
