Everypne was going mad at VAR for not calling the ref over when Ederson did the same thing against Newcastle. 

 

The goalkeeper is part of a team of 11. Our 11 did their jobs better than their 11. Yes, we switched off at 2-0, it's something we tend to do. We still did enough over 90 to fully justify the win.

Dropping my bias.

 

Over the balance of the two halves, I don't think a Liverpool win is unfair, its important to remember just how shit Palace were in that first half, 2-0 wasn't an unfair halftime score.

 

If we'd nicked a point it wouldn't have been undeserved either.

 

But that penalty was utter bullshit, and leaves the entire outcome soured as a result, nobody knows what the real result would have been.

It’s a ludicrous decision that completely undermines what had been a good old-fashioned tussle. Liverpool were dominant for the first half hour or so but think Palace looked the more dangerous after that.

 

Think the game shows why City will still walk the league. At 2-0 Liverpool should have been comfortable but looked like nervous wrecks whenever Palace swarmed forward. Matip had a poor game but Van Dijk was also off the pace, despite scoring, the high line looking vulnerable on several occasions.

 

I’m happy to see Curtis Jones getting a run in the side but will be even more so when Tiago is back. Midfield control remains minimal, and getting that back will be crucial to getting closer to City, and going further in Europe.

For me, it had to be given as a penalty. Contact in the box when missing the ball completely leaves the referee with no options. We can talk about what should and shouldn't be given, but as soon as the keeper dropped to his knees it's done.

 

 

 

But most of that contact was from Jota throwing his leg into the keeper. I know I'd be raging if it was the other way around.

Keepers get a lot of leeway but he didn’t get the ball and slid into Jota and I think would have hit him even he hadn’t stepped towards him which he had the right to do. I’d be annoyed if it had gone the other way but I don’t think Alisson would have slid in like that.

I'm with Carragher there. Not a pen. Ball was pretty much out of play by the time contact was made.

Not a penalty but where the ball is doesn't really come into the decision does it? You can tackle someone of the ball and it can still be given as a foul.
