Toffees coach is highly critical of OIiver after ruling out Distin ‘goal’.
Everton manager David Moyes claimed that his side were robbed of a legitimate goal following their goalless draw at Liverpool in Sunday afternoon’s Merseyside derby.
That scoreless draw now means that the Scot has still to register a win at the home of Everton’s city rivals since Moyes took over the reins at Goodison Park 11 years ago.
And not only that, but it is not just at Anfield that Moyes has failed to taste victory at, as the Glaswegian has also failed to record a win at Manchester United, Arsenal or Chelsea in that time as well.
However, Moyes responded to those criticisms in his post-match press conference by rightly pointing out that if the key decisions never go your way, then there is little chance of the Toffees ever leaving the home of a so-called ‘Big Four’ side with the three points.
“It was a goal, a legitimate goal,” was the clear verdict of Moyes after referee Michael Oliver had disallowed Sylvain Distin’s second-half header for an non-existent foul of Reds keeper Pepe Reina.
“The goalkeeper runs into Victor Anichebe and it’s a goal.
“The referee said that Victor impeded the goalkeeper, but it was actually the goalkeeper who ran into him so it can’t possibly be a free kick.
“It’s frustrating because people are quite quick to remind me that I haven’t won here at Anfield, but if you don’t get any decisions, it’s very hard to win here at Anfield.
“And that is quite a regular occurrence when we come to Anfield.”
