    Read full conversation between refree Jon Moss and assistant before awarding penalty

    Jon Moss awarded two controversial penalties that led to Liverpool draw at Anfield

    Lfc rumour
    Harry Kane missed a spot kick that was set after he fell down in the box while trying to beat pass Reds goalkeeper Loris Karius from a pass that went through Dejan Lovren.

    Moss whistled and pointed straight to the spot before consulting with his assistant on the near side, and Smart wanted clarification as to whether the ball did indeed touch Lovren before reaching Kane, who would have been offside had it not.

    Moss did not appear sure and consulted with fourth official Martin Atkinson via his mic, before immediately clarifying that he was awarding the penalty.

    Smart: "All I need to know is, did Lovren touch the ball?"

    Moss: "I don't know."


    Smart: "If he's not touched the ball, it is offside, so you're chalking off the penalty. It has to be offside if Lovren has not touched the ball.

    Christian Eriksen: "He did touch the ball."

    Emre Can: "He didn't touch the ball."

    Moss: "Just talk to me again."

    Smart: "You know what I'm asking; I need to clarify, has Lovren touched the ball? If he has, it's a deliberate action and, therefore, it's a penalty. If he has not, it is offside.

    Moss: "I have no idea whether Lovren touched the ball to be honest with you. Martin (Atkinson), have you got anything from TV? I'm giving the penalty."
