Joe Allen made a mess of a simple chance to put Liverpool 3-1 ahead in the Merseyside derby.

One-on-one with the goalkeeper after being played through on goal, he somehow slotted wide from close range.

Joe Allen last scored in the Premier League in April 2012 against Wolves (for Swansea). I guess that's why.
