Liverpool won their cup final today with help from “referee” Mike Riley. If you ever doubted that Liverpool get more decisions for them than anyone else you just need to look at the game today.
A few moments before the appalling sending off of Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard put in a dead certain red card tackle but the referee turned a blind eye. Gerrard also had three or maybe four yellow card incidents before his dangerous tackle on Kalou.
Unsurprisingly at the time of writing, the BBC’s Phil McNulty failed to even mention Gerrard’s horrendous tackle.
Chelsea (4-3-3): Cech; Bosingwa, Alex, Terry, A Cole; Ballack, Mikel, Lampard; Kalou (Stoch 84), Anelka (Drogba 68), Malouda (Deco 68).
Sent-off Lampard 59.
Booked A Cole 21, Mikel 52.
