Liverpool fans show support for Palestine at Anfield with flags and banners despite Premier League banthe

Liverpool fans today showed their solidarity with the Palestinians during the Merseyside derby.

 Palestinian flags were flown by supporters before the match at Anfield, despite the Premier LeaSeveralgue banning Palestinian and Israeli flags due to the current situation.

The Premier League announced on Thursday that flags would be banned from stadiums for this weekend’s matches to avoid incidents.

However, some Liverpool fans still flew Palestinian flags at Anfield. They also unfurled another banner that read: “For the love of God, save Gaza.”

Crouch and Jagielka split after Liverpool’s penalty, Ferdinand claims

TNT Sports experts believe Craig Pawson was right to award Liverpool a penalty against Everton in the Merseyside derby.

Mohamed Salah converted and put the Reds on their way to a 2-0 victory.

TNT Sports pundits Peter Crouch and Phil Jagielka disagree on whether referee Craig Pawson was right to award a penalty to Liverpool in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Everton.

Mohamed Salah was the match winner for the Reds with his two goals in the second half.

They arrived as Liverpool struggled to break down a determined Everton team, who played with 10 men for much of the afternoon after Ashley Young was given his marching orders before half-time.

However, with just over 15 minutes remaining at Anfield, the Reds were awarded a penalty after Luis Diaz’s cross hit the hand of Blues defender Michael Keane.

Salah fired his penalty high into the net to give Liverpool the lead and then added a second winning goal in added time.

After the match, Everton boss Sean Dyche insisted Pawson’s penalty award “changed the game” and TNT pundits at Anfield, including former Blues captain Jagielka, were divided on whether the referee had made the right decision. .

“It’s a progression,” Jagielka said of Pawson’s decision to punish Keane. “There was a time, a few years ago, when if you touched your arm anywhere, it was a handball.

They try to make it as simple as possible to understand, but your hand is part of your body and as you move back and forth it won’t be right next to you.

Former Liverpool striker Crouch, meanwhile, agreed with Jagielka that Everton were unhappy but he believed the right choice had been made.

“Unfortunately these days it’s a penalty,” Crouch added. “It can’t possibly be an intentional handball, but his hand is out of its natural position. Once extended, it’s a penalty these days.”

However, Rio Ferdinand said Liverpool were lucky to break the deadlock and believes Jurgen Klopp’s side could have ended the afternoon with only part of the victory had VAR not intervened in the 74th minute.

“I think that was the only way Liverpool would have scored today,” said the former Manchester United defender. “I don’t think they scored Everton’s goal today.”
