(Watch video) Liverpool vs Tottenham highlight

Report and highlights of Liverpool’s match against Tottenham, which saw Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota receive red cards, followed by Joel Matip’s own goal after Cody Gakpo’s goal cancelled out Heung-Min Son’s opening goal. PGMOL later apologized for the offside call that disallowed Luis Diaz’s goal.


Tottenham won 2-1 in a tense Premier League match against Liverpool, moving them up to second place in the standings above arch rivals Arsenal after an inaccurate goal was incorrectly disallowed and Joel Matip’s own goal in the 96th minute after Liverpool had been down to nine players.


However, it all may have been different had Luis Diaz’s first-half goal not been disallowed for offside. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had already criticized “the most unfair circumstances, crazy decisions,” before the official apology from the referee authority PGMOL.


Later it was revealed that VAR had felt the goal had been awarded due to an error in the on-field judgement. Despite the fact that Diaz was in the box, VAR Darren England relayed the phrase “check complete,” which led to the goal being disallowed.


On Saturday night, they released the following statement: “The on-field crew of match officials disallowed the goal by Luis Diaz for offside. The goal should have been given by VAR intervention because there was a glaring factual error. The VAR did not, however, step in.

Sky Sports analyst Gary Neville responded to the admission by saying: “That is amazing. It is a terrible, terrible one. That has major implications. We seldom appear to be waiting in line anymore, so I’ve been wondering if we have the proper cameras at these venues.

“I’ve defended VAR as a matter of fact, but there have been two or three in the past few weeks where I felt the angle wasn’t right behind the scenes,” the author said.
