Everton’s disallowed goal at Liverpool: Correct decision?
- May 5, 2013
The main talking point in Sunday’s goalless Merseyside derby centred around the 55th minute when Everton thought they had taken the lead at Anfield.
It was a tight game and it would have been no surprise if Everton or Liverpool would have won out thanks to a solitary goal.
Everton thought they had taken the lead when Sylvain Distin headed in at the back post but referee Michael Oliver blew up for a foul by Victor Anichebe on Jose Enrique.
The alleged offence looked pretty weak and we have seen plenty of goals given for similar set piece incidents in the Premier League this season.
After the match, David Moyes, who is still searching for his first victory at Anfield as Liverpool boss said: “It was a goal. The goalkeeper runs into our player so the goal should stand.”
It wouldn’t have made much difference to the league table but Everton fans and players will no doubt feel aggrieved that they could finally have won at Liverpool after such a long wait.
Should Everton’s disallowed goal at Liverpool have been allowed?
