In response to Kyle Walker’s assessment of the penalty incident, Jamie Carragher has criticized it as an attempt to manipulate the narrative. Carragher believes that Walker’s recent interview was aimed at changing the perception of the incident.


During Liverpool’s clash with Manchester City, the Reds were hopeful of receiving a stoppage-time penalty for the high tackle on Alexis Mac Allister by Jeremy Doku. However, referee Michael Oliver chose to let play continue, and VAR upheld his decision in the thrilling draw.


Walker commended the official’s performance during Monday’s match and expressed his belief that Oliver handled the intense atmosphere at Anfield admirably.


However, Carragher criticized the interview as an attempt to manipulate the situation and accused the City defender of playing mind games.


Kyle Walker praised Michael Oliver for his decision not to award Liverpool a last-minute penalty in their game against Man City.


‘I don’t think the penalty call was a major error by the referee,’ he posted on X, previously known as Twitter. ‘But this interview is strange!


‘The Man City press officer seems to be trying to alter the narrative that they were fortunate with the decision!!! Mind games.’


At the conclusion of an exciting match between two top teams vying for the Premier League championship, a contentious decision was made.


City scored first in the opening half through a skillfully executed corner kick by John Stones, but Mac Allister equalized with a penalty kick after halftime.


Despite the draw, the one-point difference between the teams remained, with Arsenal still leading after defeating Brentford 2-1 over the weekend. Arsenal will face City at the Etihad Stadium in their upcoming league match following the international break.
