Today’s referee is Phil Dowd – We have just seen him at the Emirates but how did he do this game?

|10||YELLOW||Carragher||Anichebe||N/C||“The ball had run out of play, Carragher was seeing it out, and just nudged Anichebe into the hoardings, Carragher knew he got away with one, Anichebe who went head over heels, could have been seriously injured.”||2|

The statistics show that Dowd had a good game and I have to agree, he handled the game well allowing it to flow, helped by two teams who appear to have forgotten it was a Merseyside Derby, well for the first half at least. It did though spice up a little in the second half.

Main disappointment was not booking Suarez for persistent simulation; he did at least 3 swan dives although one was a foul by Baines, but not poleaxed the way Suarez suggested with his fall. The other was the failure to caution Carragher for pushing Anichebe into the hoardings in the first half. A clever nudge with his shoulder, the ball was already out of play, Anichebe was hurt and it was unnecessary. I have done many Liverpool reviews this season and when playing, JC is the player who gets away with most.
