Rarely-seen referee decision made in Liverpool vs Everton leaving TNT Sports commentators confused | The SunOctober 21, 2023
TNT SPORTS commentators and fans alike were left bemused after the officials in the Merseyside derby made a rarely-seen decision.
As the game was coming to a close the fourth official readied his board to indicate how much time would be added on.
But despite initially preparing to show ten minutes of additional time, Thomas Bramall seemed to change his mind.
He changed the board and ultimately only added on nine minutes to the end of the second half.
TNT Sports' lead commentator Darren Fletcher couldn't understand the decision and seemed puzzled as to how it had happened.
But Everton fans may be glad that they didn't have to endure more added time as Liverpool doubled their lead in the 97th minute.
