The only team in the Premier League to not win a penalty
I don't get the rules of penalties really, on Saturday, Santi Cazorla won a penalty without the defender having no contact with him at all, last night, Jonjo was clearly fouled in the box and the defender tackled his feet while the ball was in front of him. We also conceded a penalty for a handball from Joe Allen, from what I know, the penalty shouldn't have been given if the player does not intend to keep away the ball from going into the net with his hand. Last night the ball was struck 1 yard away from him with almost full force, I don't even think anyone with a fast reflex can avoid that, Allen was trying to avoid the ball yet the penalty was still given. We have been disallowed many penalty kicks for us, even the pundits agree that we should've gotten penalties, and Suarez is not the only player who is actually fouled in the box for us.
Many teams get many decisions wrong against them in matches, but Liverpool are the only team to have stonewall penalties denied for them this season.
