Referee Rob Styles will not officiate in the Premier League next weekend following his performance in the Liverpool-Chelsea game on Sunday.

Styles was criticised for awarding a controversial penalty to Chelsea.

Referees' chief Keith Hackett told BBC Radio 5live: "It is just like with players, if they miss an open goal they are likely to be dropped."

Styles also appeared to show Chelsea's Michael Essien a second yellow card but then failed to send him off.

Former referee Hackett is general manager of Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL), the body which oversees referees.

The referees' supremo has apologised to Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez for the error.

Too fookin right he should be axed, he is an absolute muppet - click here.

Well in an interview on Talksport yesterday, Hackett sounded like he was all for using technology to make the game fairer and assist referee's.

A good point he made is that fans simply expect refs to get the big decisions right, to make sure they influence the game unfairly.

Im still wondering how Styles thought it was a penalty, he was yard away from it with a full view of the challenge.
