Allen missed the chance of a lifetime to write his name into the annals of the Merseyside derby when the Liverpool midfielder missed a golden opportunity to fire the Reds 3-1 up at Everton.
After a lovely piece of set up play from Luis Suarez, Allen only need to aim his shot on target and LIverpool would have opened up a 2-goal cushion on their city rivals. But Allen missed, skewing his shot wide of the Everton upright, and Liverpool’s best chance of putting the game to bed evaporated into think air.
