VAR surprises fans, concedes very controversial Leicester City goal against Liverpool

Liverpool have ‘experienced’ one of the most controversial VAR decisions this season in the overwhelming 3-1 loss to Leicester City.

The Reds took a 1-0 lead until Mohamed Salah’s goal after a super-assist from Roberto Firmino, but conceded an equalizer in a rather odd way just over ten minutes later.

At first, referee Anthony Taylor was shown a penalty for a foul on Harvey Barnes, but the decision was later changed to a free kick on the edge of the box.

Shot specialist James Maddison hit hard and the ball crossed the area but was not touched by anyone ending up in the goal.

The ball is kicked out of play. Daniel Amartey was the first to reach the post.

However, further confusion came from the VAR and the goal was subsequently conceded after Roberto Firmino’s foot was considered to have left Amarteyn in the game.

The millimeter decision of the VAR has made this goal much talked about and football fans, especially Liverpool, feel surprised by this decision. / Telegraphy /
