This is what is so frustrating about referees.
One of the Liverpool defenders pretty much drags Adebayors shirt from his back, yet because he doesn't hit the deck nothing is given.
I know it wouldn't have impacted the game that much being 3-0 down with 5 minutes to go, and I was actually pretty happy for them not to get it, having Lovren and Mignolet in my fantasy team, but I just find it annoying, players are encouraged to stay on their feet, but when clearly inpeded and they don't go down, even in clear view of the ref (much like today), a penalty is rarely given.
I believe this to be a big reason as to why players go down under minimal contact (as Joe Alan did today), as they anticipate more than they actually get.
