Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard once again came to his side's rescue but it was referee Stuart Attwell who grabbed the headlines with an erratic display in Sunderland's 2-2 draw at Anfield.
The official, who awarded the infamous "ghost goal" in the Championship two years ago, allowed Dirk Kuyt's opening strike to count after ruling Michael Turner had taken a free-kick when he appeared to roll it back to goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.
Darren Bent hit back with a penalty and a header either side of half-time before Gerrard nodded in Fernando Torres' near-post cross to salvage a point.
