Not sure if it equals 7 minutes or not, but add up the stoppages in play and I think you don't come far off that number:
4 substitutes usually given 30 seconds each = 2 minutes
3 goals scored, usually adds on 30 seconds each = 1 and half minutes
Lengthy injury stoppage for Hazard with stretcher coming on = my guess at least 1-2 minutes
Penalty with quite a long delay from whistle to actually being taken (including Riena's little drink) = my guess at least 2 minutes
Add on a number of free kicks and I think your well to the 7 minute mark if not more.

Fine to disagree, but are you saying refs don't add on 30 seconds for subs or goals, that the time Hazard took without needing a stretcher was less, or that the penalty did not take that long?
I'm just wondering how much extra time you think there should have been, and how you'd get to that number despite the actual stoppages I've pointed out.

When you say robbed "again" at Anfield, were you referring to last year's 4-1 thrashing, maybe confused with our league and cup double at the Bridge, 2-1, 2-0 last year as well, or the year before with Roy Hodgson and Torres were still at Liverpool and we won 2-0 at Anfield..
Or maybe referring to something that happened almost 10 years ago?
