Wilfried Zaha

Liverpool fans furiously dispute Crystal Palace’s penalty

Crystal Palace have taken a shock 1-0 lead into half-time at Selhurst Park in their bid for survival as Luka Milivojevic converted from 12-yards against Liverpool.

The penalty was awarded for an adjudged foul on Wilfried Zaha from the Reds’ goalkeeper Loris Karius who took out the attacker in the penalty area.

However, the away supporters have taken to Twitter in order to dispute the decision claiming the Palace forward should have seen red for his high foot challenge on the German keeper.

Penalty dispute

Liverpool fans are arguing that Ivorian international should have seen red, rather than being awarded a penalty, as the player went in with his studs up high before being taken out.

The Meyerside supporters claim the incident was similar to one earlier in the season in which Saido Mane saw red for his challenge on Mnachster City goalkeeper Ederson.
