Liverpool didn’t have things go their way against Southampton on Monday night, and they only really have themselves to blame for the 1-0 loss away from home.
But there are a lot of talking points from the defeat – a lot of them surrounding the performance of match-day referee Andre Marriner.
One instance which isn’t as obvious was a heavy challenge on James Milner by Theo Walcott – the Southampton man went through the back of the midfielder, studs up, and didn’t get the ball.
How he didn’t at least get a booking is beyond us.
Take a look at the video below:
Genuinely no idea how this isn’t a straight red. Walcott goes through the back of Milner with two feet, studs up, from behind, late, and doesn’t touch the ball. Ref didn’t blink pic.twitter.com/QXdG3SvQvh
