Everyone thinks Premier League officials are easier on Liverpool compared to Wolves

The Premier League’s officials’ inconsistency has been slammed by supporters during Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espírito Santo’s sending off against Leicester City.

A stoppage-time winner from Diogo Jota sent Molineux into a frenzy with Nuno joining the celebrations with his players.

Subsequently, the Portuguese manager was sent to the stands, however, Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp was not when he committed a similar offence versus Everton.

Santo sent off: Passion or lack of discipline?

In one of the most dramatic games of the season, Jota’s hat-trick proved decisive as Wolves walked out 4-3 winners.

Having taken the lead twice and thrown away a two-goal advantage, the fourth goal was celebrated with a great deal of passion.

Nuno charged round to the corner flag to congratulate his players but his reaction saw him sent to the stands.

When Liverpool netted a 96th-minute winner in the Merseyside derby back last month, Klopp produced a similar reaction.

However, the German manager was allowed to remain on the touchline and this inconsistency has been highlighted.

Whilst it can be argued that in the moment both managers are bound to lose their heads, they can also be knocked for showing a lack of respect to the opposing coach.
