The refereeing has been plenty worse than Paul Tierney’s on Sunday evening, but that is a very low bar, in truth.
He blew up six seconds early in the first-half instead of allowing Sadio Mane a one-on-one opportunity, which was amateur – and we remember at the time this moment just making us laugh.
Both he and the assistant, who was right in front of it, considered this a foul from Mo Salah on Harry Maguire.
Maguire literally puts his hands behind him, starts grinding on Mo, before flopping forward to the floor.
If that’s a foul on a 95kg centre-back, the game’s gone!
