After the penalty was won, the captain on the night, Jordan Henderson was set to take the penalty befor the former AC Milan man took the ball off Henderson. An argument then ensued between Balotelli, Sturridge and Henderson. Balotelli finally stepped up and put the ball into the net but Gerarrd was unimpressed with Balotelli’s lack of discipline. Gerarrd, who missed the match due to injury was on ITV and said “Henderson is the captain and Balotelli showed Jordan a bit of disrespect there.”

Had Gerarrd been on the pitch, there would have been no argument about who the penalty taker would have been. Henderson and Balotelli sorted out their differences after the goal hugging it out and carrying on with the game
