Liverpool have now lost ten goals since VAR was introduced in the Premier League – more than any other team in the league.
Technology was brought to the aid of the judges and focuses on minimizing clear and obvious errors, from the beginning of the 2019/20 season.
Liverpool won the first title after more than 30 years in the last edition, but they had three decisive goals canceled out by VAR. The first was a goal by Sadio Manes that was not allowed for handball against Manchester United in a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in October 2019.
In the same game, a United goal was controversial as despite looking like a foul by Victor Lindelof against Divock Origi, Marcus Rashford’s goal stayed.
Mane had a canceled goal for offside against Watford, while Roberto Firmino’s pearl in the game against United was not accepted after Virgil Van Dijk was said to have fouled David De Gean.
This season, the Premier League champions have had a total of seven invalid goals from VAR. It all started with Mane being taken offside, with Jordan Henderson scoring the last-minute winning goal against Everton – a match that also went unanswered for Jordan Pickford who injured Van Dijk and sent him off prematurely. from this season.
Another canceled goal was against Aston Villa, when Diogo Jota assisted from the offside position for Firmino.
Mo Salah has had three goals canceled in this edition due to his offside position, and this caused Liverpool to enter a crisis of results slowly.
