BBC Sport - West Ham 1-2 Liverpool: Allardyce questions penalty decision

Flanagan looked for penalty - Allardyce

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce says Jon Flanagan was looking for a penalty as his side were beaten 2-1 by Premier League leaders Liverpool.

With the score at 1-1, referee Anthony Taylor decided Flanagan had been brought down by West Ham goalkeeper Adrian 19 minutes from time, and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard scored the resulting penalty, his second spot-kick of the match.

West Ham remain 10 points above the Premier League relegation zone despite the defeat.
