Alan Shearer shared an instant reaction to the fact that Liverpool did not receive a penalty when Diogo Jota was floored in the box.
You know it’s a bad decision by a referee when there’s rival fans and pundits agreeing with our point of view and there was no denying that Emerson Royal fouled our No.20.
The Premier League’s record goal scorer took to Twitter to share his thoughts on Jurgen Klopp’s side not receiving a penalty: ‘How’s that not a pen?‘.
And another. How’s that not a pen? #TOTLIV #VAR

The Newcastle legend saying ‘And another’ was a reference to his team not getting a penalty during their game with Manchester City earlier in the day.
It’s shameful for a league of this standard to have such poor referees, especially given the introduction of VAR which should help eradicate errors.
Instead we have the same debates and issues every week, in multiple games, of officiating mistakes leading to key moments being incorrectly overseen.
