We were robbed - Keane

Football News
Sunderland manager Roy Keane slammed the decision which denied his side a penalty at Anfield in the 3-0 defeat against Liverpool.

The contentious moment came with the hosts 2-0 up but under intense pressure when it looked as if Jamie Carragher handled the ball above his head as he dived in to block a Daryl Murphy shot but referee Rob Styles turned down appeals.

But Keane pointedly referred back to a decision Styles made at Anfield back in August when he awarded a debatable penalty in Chelsea´s favour and was then demoted saying: "We were never going to get a penalty today, never. Rob was referee here when he gave Chelsea a penalty against Liverpool earlier in the season and he was demoted after that game."
