Gerrard feels Liverpool hard done by with officials decisions

Steven Gerrard says Liverpool where let down by the match officials after Luis Suarez's late goal was ruled out for offside in the 2-2 draw with Everton.

"I've seen it (Suarez's disallowed goal) again and we can feel sorry for ourselves because it was a clear goal," said the Reds skipper.

"We should have taken away the three points rather than just one.

"There is no offside and it's difficult for me to explain it. The only person who can explain it is the linesman.

"I asked him after the game if it was offside and he said 'I think so'. That's not good enough.

"If every decision in this league is based on 'we think so', then we're in trouble.

"The linesman got it badly wrong. The benefit of the doubt is supposed to go to the attacking player anyway.

"And for their second goal, it's a clear throw-in to us.

"The linesman (not the one who flagged Suarez offside) gives us the throw but the referee (Andre Marriner) saw something different.

"He gave Everton the throw and their second goal came from that."
