How on earth Howard Webb is adjudged to be one of the best referees in the country I’ll never know.

After one of the worst ever performances in the World Cup final when he point blank refused to send anyone off even though the Dutch began resorting to playing a brand of football that more resembled martial arts, Webb has consistently bottled out of the big decisions.

Yesterday Suarez was denied a clear second penalty with the referee standing barely five yards away. It was unbelievable to all watching and even Andy Gray was moved to utter “what part of assault does the referee not understand”.

How on earth Howard Webb is adjudged to be one of the best referees in the country I’ll never know.

After one of the worst ever performances in the World Cup final when he point blank refused to send anyone off even though the Dutch began resorting to playing a brand of football that more resembled martial arts, Webb has consistently bottled out of the big decisions.

Yesterday Suarez was denied a clear second penalty with the referee standing barely five yards away. It was unbelievable to all watching and even Andy Gray was moved to utter “what part of assault does the referee not understand”.

Minutes later he should have given Steven Gerrard a second yellow card for another mistimed tackle on the edge of the area but again failed to apply the rules consistently and the Liverpool captain was lucky to stay on the pitch.

Webb has clearly begun to believe his own hype and combined with the glaring overlooking of another Suarez penalty against Chelsea being refereed by Webb has condemned the Reds to defeat in the last seven games he has officiated.

Yes really. In the last seven games that Webb has taken charge of refereeing duties Liverpool have lost every game.

Enough sour grapes. Liverpool should have won this game and that they did not was due to a bad day at the office for Daniel Sturridge and a fantastic performance from Arsenal goalkeeper Fabianski who had the best game of his career to shut out the Liverpool strikers.

Indeed Liverpool could have been two up in the first five minutes had not a combination of wayward finishing and outstanding goalkeeping combined to keep the scoreboard 0-0 with Gerrard controlling the strings in midfield and playing sublime through passes.

Liverpool fans can take heart from this performance. They outplayed Arsenal for much of this game and deserved at least a replay.

The upside is that now the Reds have just the league to concentrate on with no distractions. If they keep playing like this and manage to keep a thin squad off the treatment table then they do have a chance of winning it. The percentages may be against them but the odds are being cut every week and with the other teams having to play twice a week from now till the end of the season Liverpool have a slight advantage going into the last third of the season.
