Spitting is disgusting and has no place in football, but whether Everton fans actually gobbed on Liverpool Luis Suarez on Saturday is up for debate.
In the 22nd minute, as LIverpool’s number 7 was walking down the touchline at Goodison Park, a shedload of tweets claimed to have spotted an Everton fans hocking a lugie in Luis Suarez’s direction.
Unfortunately the video footage at the time was shaky at best, and the images at hand make it impossible to know for sure whether an Everton supporter actually spat at Liverpool’s star striker.
Footage from the time of the incident can be seen below, along with a series of tweets claiming Everton fans spat at Luis Suarez.
An Everton fan just spat at Suarez. Don't like Suarez at all but still that's not acceptable. #EvertonvLiverpool
