A controversial penalty proved to be decisive for Liverpool in their match against Birmingham City (2-2). Rafa Benitez’ squad needed a theatrical display by David Ngog to equalise. The French striker went to the ground after a tackle by Lee Carsley despite no contact appearing to have been made. Steven Gerrard converted from the spot.

“An embarrassing case of cheating,” Carsley described Ngog’s action. “I was absolutely nowhere near him.”

Birmingham City coach Alex McLeish also accused the French forward of diving. “It was a clear dive, it was not even close to being a penalty. This is a serious disgrace.”
