Everton skipper Neville "awestruck" by ref
Phil Neville claimed "awestruck" match officials will continue to ruin big games with mistakes as he wrestled with the injustice of Everton's derby defeat.
Mark Clattenburg's decision not to award Joleon Lescott a penalty in injury time following his tangle with Jamie Carragher was just one of a number of things he botched up on Saturday afternoon but Neville wearily admits it won't be the last time Everton are wronged.
"I have been on the other side of things and you can see that some referees are awestruck when they deal with certain players and certain clubs," Neville told the Liverpool Echo. "But it's never going to change. It's been happening for 20 or 30 years and, unfortunately, we just have to get on with it."
