Here's Craig Howarth's take on referee Steve Bennett.
"I'm just amazed at the fact nobody has mentioned Steve Bennet and his complete and utter disgrace of a performance yesterday! Rob Stiles made one mistake during Chelsea v Liverpool, yes it gave Chelsea a lifeline and he was dragged through the mud and dropped for the next week.
"Bennet missed a clear penalty, in the first half and even though i'm a Newcastle fan I can admit Kilbane was sent off for no reason! And then if you look at his officals; in the first half Owen/Viduka were wrongly called offside, and in the second half there was a debateable decision with Steven Taylor.
"Not only to mention Emile Hesky's violant attack on both Steven Taylor and Steve Harper which should have seen him given a second yellow card!
"But no, because it isn't "a top four team" nobody cares. I would have loved to see the reaction if it was Liverpool not Newcastle yesterday."
