Liverpool against Tottenham could be replayed under Premier League rules following the release of the VAR audio.

Tottenham defeated Liverpool on Saturday night, 2-1.


The Premier League may be compelled to replay Liverpool’s match against Tottenham Hotspur, according to a renowned sports attorney.


The Reds were defeated 2-1 by Ange Postecoglou’s team on Saturday, ending their unblemished start to the Premier League season. Son Heung-min and Cody Gakpo each scored goals before Joel Matip scored an own goal in stoppage time.

The defeat was only half of the tale, though, as Liverpool were furious because a goal within the game’s first 45 minutes was incorrectly disallowed for offside. ‘A substantial human error happened’ during the goal review, the PGMOL acknowledged right away after the game.


On Tuesday evening, the audio recordings of the match officials’ conversations regarding Diaz’s disallowed goal were made public. Stephen Taylor Heath, co-head of sports law at JMW Solicitors, has now revealed that there is a legal procedure for enforcing a replay. It is important to note that Liverpool has not requested a rematch of the match.

Taylor Heath noted in an interview with the Mirror that according to Rule L18, the Premier League board has the authority to require a league match to be replayed as long as a commission established under Rule W51 has recommended it.

“In addition, rule W1 gives the Premier League board the authority to look into any alleged rule violation, even one committed by a match official, and rule N4 assures that each match official agrees to be bound by all applicable protocols and FA rules.
