VAR was in the spotlight again for all the wrong reasons as Roberto Firmino had a hard-ruled offside goal in Liverpool’s clash with Aston Villa on Saturday.
The Brazil striker believed he called Ollie Watkins’ opener when he came in at close range in the first half timeout.
Trent Alexander-Arnold played a diagonal ball to Diogo Jota, who ran to the signing and brought it back to Mohamed Salah.
The Egyptian forward dropped Andy Robertson, whose blocked shot fell to Firmino to overtake Emiliano Martinez.
However, VAR ruled Jota offside by the slightest margin in the progression to goal.
This is the second tight VAR offside call in as many days as Willian Jose had a goal disallowed by another close decision in the Wolves 1-0 over Fulham.
