In the 58th minute, Mac Allister was awarded a red card for a high tackle on Ryan Christie. Despite the severity of the ejection, Bournemouth manager Andoni Iraola said after the game that it did not appear to be a red card.
Following an allegation of unfair termination, an independent regulatory commission lifted Alexis McCallum's three-match punishment, the fa announced in a statement.

Liverpool came back to beat Bournemouth 3-1 in the Premier League on Saturday, with manager Juergen Klopp applauding his team's calmness under pressure after conceding the opening goal at Anfield.
An offside goal by Bournemouth in the first five minutes took Liverpool off surprise, and then in the third minute, Antoine Semenyo gave them the lead.
The hosts, on the other hand, overcame their stuttering, with goals from Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota clinching the points after Luis Diaz had canceled out Semenyo's score.
"Awful start to the game. I think the first goal we gave up was offside and served as a wake-up call. That's OK with me. " A few minutes later, which is not cool, we gave up a regular goal, Klopp said Sky Sports.
After shaking it off, which took us a few minutes, we were OK. Because we were abruptly down to 10 men, the second half was drastically different, but we still managed to score the third goal, which is crucial at this point.
"It boost our energy." It's matchday two, and it's going to be challenging. It was extremely hot today, so the lads had to fight through it, but we didn't give up and gained the three points, which is all I needed."">
