Liverpool Balls: Flanagan Goes Down In Slow Motion And Anthony Taylor Misses CCTV Footage Of Carroll’s Assault
LIVERPOOL are top of the Premier League. They defeated West Ham United 2-1. They scored two penalties. The first was a pen. The second shouldn’t have been. The Hammers’ goalkeeper Adrian got to the ball first. We captured Jon Flanagan’s tumble on camera.
The game was also memorable for referee Anthony Taylor’s inability look at the massive TV screen behind his head to see Andy Carroll’s foul in the build up the the happy Hammers’ goal.
Sky TV’s Jamie Redknapp says Andy Carroll’s challenge on Mignolet was “bordering on assault”.
Adam Hurry explains:
The established measure for this, of course, is the If You Did That To Someone in The Street Test – this one would be rather hard to stage in that context, perhaps.
