Southampton defender Jose Fonte has questioned the consistency of Premier League referees in the wake of his side's 2-2 draw at Sunderland.

• Rann: Saints rue missed chances. Again.

Fonte, 30, played the full 90 minutes of Saturday's game in which Southampton saw Gaston Ramirez stretchered off following a tackle from Wes Brown.

Racing into a 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Jay Rodriguez and Dejan Lovren, Saints were ultimately pegged back by the Black Cats after missing a host of chances to extend their lead.

However, Fonte feels his side were denied two strong claims for a penalty on Saturday, and used his official Instagram account to post photographic evidence -- adding the line 'No consistency on refs! Sorry."
