Chelsea fans dispute Liverpool’s equaliser…and Howard Webb agrees

Controversial stuff

Liverpool were thrown a lifeline against Chelsea as Philippe Coutinho equalised on the stroke of half time.

But should he have been given the chance to score the goal?

Countinho’s strike came long after the two minutes of stoppage time had elapsed, but referee Mark Clattenburg allowed play to continue, giving the Brazilian the chance to get the goal.

Former Premier League referee Howard Webb admitted he was “extremely surprised” that the game was still being played.

Unsurprisingly, Chelsea fans weren’t too happy about it.
