Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes his team were denied two clear penalties in their 2-1 defeat to Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Wednesday.
The Reds boss says he is disappointed with the result despite his side’s dominant performance and adds that he is staggered how Liverpool continued to have penalty shouts waved away by referees.
“I’m flabbergasted how did didn’t get two penalties,” said Rodgers.
“There was one in each half and their goal from a free kick was never a free kick, so I’m very disappointed by the decisions that were against us.”
“It was bordering on assault, he gets smashed by the defender and by the goalkeeper and nothing.
“And in the second, Luis Suarez swivels out and William Gallas has a swing and catches him and it looks a clear penalty.
“We might get one one year, because we haven’t had a penalty yet [this season], at all.”
The manager also said he feels Liverpool’s performance should have rewarded them with the three points, and added that he was encouraged by their effort and is confident they will climb the table.
“I would have been disappointed if we would have drawn the game, having played so well,” he said.
“I think we created more than them and we pushed them back. We’re up there with the top teams in terms of creating chances in this league and we want to be that bit more clinical.
"I can’t have any complaints from the team tonight. Yes we didn’t get any points, but the performance level was outstanding and if we play like that we will climb the league very quickly.”
