Norwich City midfielder Alexander Tettey appears to have been fortunate to not get a red card in City’s 4-1 loss at Aston Villa yesterday, as this picture shows.

Villa defender Nathan Baker decided to post a picture of some sore-looking studmarks across his chest, to highlight how high Tettey’s boot had been when it made contact.

The clumsy challenge, in the 30th minute of the match, saw Tettey given a yellow card by referee Anthony Taylor.

It sparked a bout of pushing and shoving between the Norwich and Villa players, with many of the home fans calling for the Norway international to be sent off.

It made little difference though as Villa went on to score another two goals before half-time to complete their comeback from going 1-0 down in the third minute, thanks to a Wes Hoolahan goal, and seal their 4-1 success.
