THE GREAT DEBATE: Should the Liverpool v Tottenham match be replayed after the VAR disaster?
- A huge VAR howler cost Liverpool a goal in their 2-1 defeat to Spurs on Saturday
- Liverpool want the match replayed but not everyone is in agreeement
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has called for his side’s 2-1 defeat to Tottenham last Saturday to be replayed after an incredible VAR howler denied the Reds a goal.
Luis Diaz’s strike was disallowed by VAR Darren England, who wrongly believed the on-field decision had been a goal, so said ‘check complete’ once he ascertained that the Colombia winger was onside.
Instead of a goal being awarded, the match resumed with a free-kick to Spurs. Referees’ chiefs later admitted to a ‘significant human error’.
Liverpool pressured the PGMOL to release the audio from the incident, which was eventually published on Tuesday evening.
Premier League rule L18 gives the organisation’s board the power to order a match to be replayed ‘if an appointed commission recommends such action’.
While it is thought unlikely that the game will be replayed, the VAR farce has sparked widespread debate among footballers, pundits and fans.
