News From Liverpool: Steven Gerrard tells officials to look at Jon Moss display – and Liverpool fans agree

Villa shocked Liverpool early on Tuesday night, with Douglas Luiz firing in after just three minutes, only to be pegged back by Joel Matips goal soon after.

Sadio Mane then headed home the winner in the second half, in a game frequently broken up by minor fouls 10 of which were awarded to Liverpool and 12 to Villa.

Moss was referee for the night, and was central to a number of confusing decisions, including a moment where he initially looked to call a foul for Villa before allowing play to go on and then eventually pulling it back.

Liverpool could feel most aggrieved, given a clear offside was not flagged in the buildup to Luizs opener, but after the game it was Gerrard who questioned Moss display.

No comment, I just hope that its looked at. Thats all Ill say, I just hope its looked at. Hope, I hope its looked at, he told reporters.

? “He’s retiring at the end of the season.”

Gerrard ? “Is he? Good.”

You just asked me a question so you obviously think it, dont you? Ive answered your question, I just hope Jons performance is looked at.

I dont want to get into trouble, I dont want to be sour. Weve lost the game, Liverpool have scored two goals against us, we need to look at that.

I dont want to try and cover over any cracks, but you asked me a question and I said I hope the referees performance is looked at.

When informed that Moss had decided to retire at the end of the season, Gerrard replied: Is he? Good.

Normally, when one manager is critical of a referee post-match it is a view not shared by the opposition but that was not the case this time.

Jon Moss doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing, does he?
