Shaun Batt: Got the final touch

The 66th-minute strike, which cancelled out Charlie MacDonald's opener for the hosts, was initially awarded to Kevin Lisbie, but after a review the League has adjudged substitute Batt should be awarded the goal.

The news will not go down well at Oldham, who claimed Batt was clearly offside when he deflected in Lisbie's shot from close range.

Latics boss Lee Johnson said after the match: "How can the referee and linesman not see that the lad touched the ball before it went into the net?

"He touched it and it was offside. We've given a fantastic performance and yet again we've been undone by poor officiating."

The goal takes Batt's tally for the season to six while Lisbie remains on eight.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
