Video: Liverpool’s Robertson goes unpunished for seemingly deliberate kick out on Allan

In the 53rd minute of Saturday afternoon’s action-packed Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton, Andy Robertson was perhaps a lucky man after an unsportsmanlike bit of play.

Robertson sparked a break for Liverpool before being knocked over by Yerry Mina, but as the left-back went down, his leg was outstretched and defensive midfielder Allan was hacked down.

Replays seem to suggest that Robertson looked over and kicked out at the Brazilian, but these could be exaggerating the incident and it’s not impossible that the Scotsman’s leg became outstretched as a result of the tangle with Mina.

Here’s how some football fans reacted to the moment:

Once again, it was another horrendous day for officiating in the Premier League. It’s obvious that there has to be much more consistency when it comes to certain types of calls like handball and offside.

As harsh as it is, some of the above fans do have a point, Pickford’s challenge on Van Dijk was reckless and led to a potentially serious injury. But Mane and Robertson also went unpunished for seemingly deliberate attempts to bring down an opponent.

    Everton fans are embarrassing. Actually finding excuses to justify a deliberate foul that could’ve caused a career ending injury. But what do we expect, they worship a man who was actually jailed for headbutting an opponent on the pitch. Best start in Everton’s history and they STILL couldn’t beat Liverpool!

      Hahaha Liverpool fan calling other fans embarassing, how ironic. like you didn’t defend Van Dijk when he almost broke Mertens’s leg and booed Mertens off the pitch, or when you defended Mane after he almost took Ederson’s head off, and booed Ederson off the pitch, how about when you booed Yaya Toure off the pitch when he got injured ? or when your fans attacked City’s coach ? how about Heysel ? oh that’s a nasty one. no one is defending Pickford’s challenge ( and you have no proof that it was deliberate), they are just pointing out several decisions that went against Everton that of course the Liverpool biased media don’t talk about, but what do you expect ? you defended a racist diver who bit people for fun and worshipped him. best start in Everton’s history and they are still top, quite frankly I’m enjoying the red boiled piss meltdown, utterly hilarious and embarassing if you had any shame but you have none of course.

    But what do you expect from this lot, they worshipped a racist diver who bit people for fun. Best start in Everton’s history and they are still top, and I’m enjoying the red boiled piss meltdown, hilarious and embarassing if you have any shame, but of course Liverpool fans have none.

Who really do they think they are, givers but obviously can’t take a bit of what they dish out ! Do they know how embarrassing and tiresome there are becoming, again. Move on!
