EPL: Referees under fire for ‘favouring’ Liverpool at Anfield

Southampton manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl, has told Premier League referees to be ‘brave’ when they officiate at Anfield.

Hasenhuttl feels his side should have had a ‘clear penalty’ during their 4-0 defeat to Liverpool on Saturday. Saints striker, Danny Ings, went down under a Fabinho challenge in the box, but referee Kevin Friend waved play on and the Reds took the lead through Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain moments later.

‘You need brave decisions from the referee. To say ‘no goal and penalty’, here at Anfield, that won’t happen. In the first half there was a backpass to the Liverpool goalkeeper [not given], that’s another decision, maybe this is why it’s so difficult to win here.
