PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! It seems the pundits cannot agree about the decision to award Everton a penalty in their Merseyside derby victory over Liverpool. Carlo Ancelotti's men beat Jurgen Klopp's side 2-0 in Saturday's Premier League showdown at Anfield. Richarlison opened the scoring early on, with substitute Gylfi Sigurdsson sealing the win from the spot in the 83rd minute. The penalty was given after Trent Alexander-Arnold was adjudged to have fouled Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the area.

There was arguably little the Liverpool defender could have done to avoid the contact but referee Chris Kavanagh stuck with his initial decision after being advised to check the pitchside monitor by VAR. Match of the Day pundits Danny Murphy and Martin Keown both thought it was a penalty. “Initially I thought it was a bad decision because you saw him make contact with his head and fall over," said former Liverpool midfielder Murphy. "It was only later when we could watch these replays that you can see that he’s lifted his foot. In the end, it didn’t really matter. "Some referees would’ve given it, some wouldn’t, but the game was already lost.” *Sign up for our FREE Everton or Liverpool newsletter here. Former Arsenal and Everton defender Keown added: “For me, this is a penalty. You have to look at it closely. "He makes contact there, there’s nothing Alexander-Arnold can do about it, but then he raises his foot.

.” Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen was in agreement with Murphy and Keown, telling Premier League Productions: “I thought it was a penalty as well. "I think you can see there Trent Alexander-Arnold hooks his leg up, he lifts it up and he almost hooks him down, and I thought it was a penalty as well.” However, former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher did not think it was a penalty. "The referee's given a penalty but, when you see Trent, I'm not sure what he's supposed to do," Carragher told Sky Sports.

I think that's very harsh for a penalty, I really do. "Trent's got to put a challenge in and it's just that follow-through from Calvert-Lewin. "I'm not sure what Trent's supposed to do. Maybe you could argue it's not the fault of Calvert-Lewin that Trent's in his way but I think it's very harsh." He added: "You don't see that often - you don't see a referee asked to look at a decision and very rarely keep his decision. "I think it's a very harsh one." Fellow Sky Sports pundit and Liverpool legend Graeme Souness was in the same camp as Carragher. "Never a penalty, he's staggering before contact," said Souness. "I don't think there's one professional footballer who'd say that's a penalty."
