I understand your point, as it does seem that the refs apply the rules unevenly. So in that case, we have to be less obvious with it.I’ll say it again. Any Liverpool player that responds to thuggery in kind, would be sent off. That’s the way it goes.
In the example I gave between Stevie and Fellaini, our man put their man in his place, put a marker down that no one roughs up our players, and he stayed on the pitch.
Stevie did it to others too and didn’t get punished. From memory I remember a crunching tackle on Jack Wiltshire that put the then Arsenal man on the floor. Prior to that Wilshere had engaged in rough play and Stevie upped the ante and sorted it out.
