- Rob Styles later apologised for the penalty he awarded to Chelsea: "Yesterday, in mistakenly awarding a penalty, I accept that I may have affected the result of the match and for that I apologise."
- Spanish journalist Gulliem Balague: "It was just a shame for Fernando that Rob Styles took away some of his limelight. I wrote in my local Spanish paper that it was like watching a La Liga match, because you had 100 fouls, a penalty that wasn't, a referee who had a bad match and a Spanish striker scoring. You also had the whole of Anfield protesting against the referee and it was just like a Spanish match really."
