It is a day that will go down in infamy for Kopites. Liverpool made the short trip up to Old Trafford only to be robbed of three points by Martin Atkinson. In the build up to the goal which handed Man United a point, Victor Lindelof clearly fouled Divock Origi yet nothing was given. The referee made a series of horrendous errors throughout the game which prevented Liverpool from ever maintaining any rhythm to their play. Piers Morgan has had his say on the Liverpool heartache.

Let’s get this straight before we dive in: Piers Morgan isn’t welcome in Liverpool. However, he is awarded a small nod of the head for his comments on Martin Atkinson’s incompetence. Though, we should bare in mind that anybody with an ounce of footballing knowledge would come to the same conclusion and his comments about the Sadio Mane goal are, sadly, incorrect.

Morgan tweeted during the game that he believes Martin Atkinson got it wrong when he didn’t blow up for a foul on Divock Origi in the build up to Marcus Rashford’s goal. He also proceeded to assert that Mane’s goal should have stood, this is simply not the case, football fans want consistency in decisions – Gabriel Jesus’ late equaliser against Spurs was ruled out for the same reason.

These Reds thought that we were up against 13 men.

Another Kopite hinted at conspiracy.

 

Whilst this Liverpool fan wanted to make sure any conspiracies that the Reds are getting help are put to bed.

One Red took aim at Martin Atkinson.

Famous Reds author Paul Tomkinson pointed out that even Gary Neville thought it was a foul.
