Guzan: Suarez Unsure Over Penalty Call

Brad Guzan revealed that Luis Suarez was unsure whether he had been fouled by the U.S. international following the controversial penalty decision that rescued a 2-2 draw for Liverpool at home to Aston Villa on Saturday. Reds captain Steven Gerrard leveled the game from the spot after Guzan missed the ball while diving at Suarez's feet. Earlier, Villa had taken a 2-0 first-half lead thanks to goals from Christian Benteke and Andreas Weimann before Daniel Sturridge pulled one back on the stroke of halftime.

"I asked [Suarez] -- because I was pretty confident in myself I hadn't touched him -- 'Did I touch you?' and he said 'I don't know',” Guzan said. “That is the honest truth of it. Sometimes they go for you, sometimes not. Obviously the referee has given it but at the time I thought I pulled my hands back and I don't think I made contact with him.” Given that, Guzan said Jon Moss’ decision to award a penalty was “probably a soft decision.”

He noted that a point “wasn’t a bad result” for 10th-place Aston Villa: "It is probably a point earned because we worked hard for it and when you come to a place like [Anfield] it is not the worst result. ... A few more results go our way and the next thing you know we are pushing our way up the table. We want to sort that out as quickly as possible."
