I stated that Steve Bennett was an incompetent. Though Liverpool fans are surely hurling abuse at him now, he had an exceptional performance.

I thought, based upon past experiences, that Steve Bennett will make our job as difficult as possible. However, he had the guts to send off Mascherano who was shouting f*** *ff immediately after his first yellow and had to be restrained several times before that final act of dissent.

He did not have other major decisions to make, as this was not a difficult match but I have to apologise because he did not make any significant mistakes.

However, I still stand by my line that went as ‘leave the moaning about refs to Arsene Wenger’!
