Lampard issues bizarre Salah claim as Everton boss slams penalty call in Liverpool win

Posted by

Frank Lampard criticised the decision to avoid awarding his side a spot-kick for an alleged foul on Anthony Gordon in the second-half of the Merseyside derby, as relayed in a tweet by Paul Gorst.

The 21-year-old was bundled over by Joel Matip in the Liverpool box not long after play had resumed in the final 45 minutes of action.

The hosts ran out 2-0 winners in the end, with the arrival of cameo superstar Divock Origi helping shift the tie in Jurgen Klopp’s men’s favour.

To be completely fair to the ex-Chelsea man, you’d be inclined to argue that the Toffees had a strong case for a penalty following the Cameroonian’s intervention.

Of course, one might also point out that Everton did also benefit from a rub of the green on occasion with a handful of rather blatant dives.

On top of that, it’s utterly bizarre to use Mo Salah as an example of a player benefitting from officiating calls when arguably the opposite is true.

Ultimately, it has to be said that we did enough on the day to earn the lion’s share of the points against our city rivals and keep the pressure on Manchester City in the title race.

  1. Lampard has obviously taken notes out of Jose’s “parking the bus” notebook. I hope the Toffees go down because they “play” League 1 football. Listened to Leon Osman on Sky talking about how Mane should have seen red – you have a very short memory bud. Pickford should have seen red last season -did not even get a yellow. Holgate should have seen red after his push on Firmino 🤮🤮🤮
