Paulinho appeal likely

16 December 2013 10:14

Tottenham are set to appeal the red card issued to Paulinho in Sunday's 5-0 home reverse at the hands of Liverpool.

The Brazilian midfielder was sent off during the second half after catching Luis Suarez in the chest with a high boot.

Andre Villas-Boas' men were two goals down at the time and went on to ship three more goals in a painful defeat.

When asked if the club would appeal Paulinho's dismissal, Villas-Boas said: "I will try. Hopefully there can be some sensitivity into it, but we will look into it."

Elaborating on his frustration, Tottenham's head coach added: "I think the sending off is a bit harsh. I agree that Paulinho raises his foot high, but he doesn't have (the) intention to hurt Suarez.

"I think a yellow card is more appropriate.

"That was the key moment in the game; it didn't give us chance to bounce back and we suffered a heavy defeat."
