VAR canceled Liverpool's valid goal 2

In the 34th minute, Mohamed Salah made a pass for Luis Diaz to rush into the penalty area and then shot a low cross-angle shot to defeat goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario.

The broadcasters did not show the lines in this situation, likely because the VAR team did not draw the lines.

beIN Sports’s line shows that Diaz (red shirt, above) is not offside.

On Sky Sports, Gary Neville, after carefully reviewing the situation, also said that Diaz did not appear to be offside.

Jamie Carragher also commented on the match, and was angry when his former team did not receive a goal.

After the match, the referee board issued a statement saying that referee VAR England and assistant Dan Cook made a mistake in this situation.

Referee Hooper also caused controversy in a few situations in this match, such as the direct red card and disqualification of midfielder Curtis Jones in the 26th minute. Slow motion showed Jones stepping on the ball with the bottom of his shoe, but

Neville commented that the red card was unreasonable, because in this situation Jones stepped on the ball first.

This situation has many similarities to last season, when midfielder Casemiro was also sent off when Man Utd played Southampton at Old Trafford on March 12, 2023.

Tottenham opened the scoring just two minutes after Diaz was denied a legitimate goal, but Cody Gakpo equalized for the away team at the end of the first half.
