Lambert bemoans penalty call

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert was unhappy with Liverpool's penalty as his side were forced to settle for a 2-2 draw at Anfield.

Villa raced into a 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Andreas Weimann and Christian Benteke, but Daniel Sturridge reduced the arrears with a goal back for Liverpool right on the stroke of half-time.

Liverpool won a controversial penalty early in the second half when Luis Suarez went down in the box under a challenge from Brad Guzan, but Lambert felt his goalkeeper did not touch the Uruguayan in the incident.

"I think Guzan pulled his arms away, that could be a biased view, but I don't think it is," Lambert told Sky Sports.

"I think [referee] Jon [Moss] is in a good position to see it but if you look at Guzan he pulls his arms away, and I am sure everybody will have a different opinion but my own view was I think he pulled his arms away.

"Listen, you are up against the Kop End and it can be an intimidating place.

"Jon's got a hard job, he has got one decision to make, but I don't think it was [a penalty]."

Lambert was delighted with his side's display as they dominated for long periods of the game and felt they 'should have been out of sight' in the first half.

"I thought we were outstanding to be fair," added Lambert. "I thought first half we should have been out of sight.

"I thought maybe we should have been three [up] at least anyway, but the way we played the game was absolutely fantastic.

"Terrific performance, big, big performances and I am really happy with that."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
