In the 89th minute of Sunday's 5-1 win over Yeovil Town, Manchester City's Carli Lloyd was shown a red card for elbowing Annie Heatherson.

The 2016 World Player of the Year was clearly being held in the box, but her complaints to the official didn't work.

According to the BBC, the 34-year-old Lloyd could receive a three-game suspension, making her available for just one more City match this season.
