Liverpool got a lot of penalties last season. But, in truth, many of those were deserved. This season the wriggling of Luis Suarez has gone, and, certainly not coincidentally, the spot-kick tally has reduced.
But Mike Jones is doing his bit for the Reds, giving this baffling pen against Leicester. The ball clearly hit Wes Morgan’s face as Raheem Sterling crossed, but the decision was given and, as ever, Stevie Gerrard converted.
