Liverpool Ask Premier League To Review VAR Decisions Following Draw 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Oct 18, 2020 5:20 am

Liverpool have asked the Premier League to review its VAR decisions following the side\'s 2-2 draw against Everton.

The two decisions in question were a failed red card review for Jordan Pickford\'s challenge on Virgil van Dijk, and calling back Jordan Henderson\'s match-winning goal in stoppage time due to an offsides on Sadio Mane.

“I am a real supporter of VAR but in the one picture I saw there is no offside. Since then I have had 10 interviews and everyone tells me it was not offside and that doesn’t lift my mood.

\"We lost one player in a situation where VAR was not involved with Virgil and maybe another one in the red card situation and scored a legitimate goal which didn’t count. It was not our day but the performance was the performance I wanted to see,\" said Jurgen Klopp after the game.

Carlo Ancelotti defended Pickford\'s performance.

“He played a good game, like the other players. He made good saves, he was focused and it was a good performance. Unfortunately Van Dijk got injured. I hope that he can recover well and soon.”
