EPL: Lampard Blames Referee for Everton’s 2-0 Defeat at Liverpool

Everton manager, Frank Lampard, has insisted his team should have gotten a penalty against Liverpool on Sunday.

The Toffees came into the game at Anfield in relegation places, after Burnley beat Wolves 1-0 earlier in the day.

Although the Reds went on to win 2-0 with two second-half goals, the story would have been different if the visitors were awarded a penalty when Anthony Gordon went down under a challenge from Joel Matip with the score at 0-0.

However, Stuart Attwell, who had already booked Gordon for a dive, waved play on.

“It was a penalty. I don’t think you get them here. I think if that is Mo Salah at the other end, he gets the penalty.

“I am not trying to create conflict there, I just think it is the reality of football sometimes,” Lampard said.
