Gary Neville, co-commentator of Liverpool‘s 4-2 win over Newcastle yesterday on the Sky Sports network. Criticized the work of referee Anthony Taylor who awarded a penalty twice. Especially the last time because they saw that Diogo Jota fell 2-3 yards late from the impact point.

That moment, in the 85th minute with Jurgen Klopp’s team leading 3-2. Alexis Mac Allister stabbed a long ball for Jota to break free before being hit by goalkeeper Martin Dubravka caught him in the penalty area and touched his back leg to make him stagger. ทางเข้า UFABET Which from the flashback, the 27-year-old footballer fell a bit slowly. 

When referee Taylor and ‘VAR’ operator Stuart Attwell confirmed. It was a foul on Dubravka and handed out a yellow card, the assassin Mohamed Salah shot. Pao made up for his mistake in the first half and successfully found the back of the net to close the box 4-2. 

That led Gary Neville to express his opinion that he couldn’t just blame the players. The black shirt must also be blamed for not being square.

“Oh… no, you can’t give a penalty for something like that.” said the eight-time English Premier League champion. 

“That guy ran up ahead. Then slowly fall down Saying it’s a slow fall makes more sense.”

“Because from the point of impact it was another 2-3 yards forward.” 

“Liverpool fans may have booed referee Anthony Taylor. But that moment when he gave you that sweet whistle – I don’t think it was a penalty.”  

Taylor said that in the 3 games that Liverpool has played this season, the team has never lost. Apart from defeating Newcastle 4-2. They also tied with Brighton 2-2 and tied with Chelsea 1-1 .
