The visitors were a goal up when Michail Antonio was upended the the box, but the Owls' penalty claims were given short shrift by referee Andy D'Urso.

"We had a stonewall penalty again which the referee said Antonio went down too easy," Jones said.

"But I think a pull is not going down too easy. I'm getting fed up now, the referee has to give that.

"He is clipped from behind and pulled by the arm and that is a clear penalty. One day someone is going to see it, but they just pat it off as 'he went down too easy'.

"That's poor on their part and probably one of the reasons why he has been demoted down. He is five yards away, one day someone is going to give us something."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
