ANGRY Jurgen Klopp Speaks After VAR Denied Liverpool Victory Over Everton (See What He Said)

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says he “didn’t see offside” as VAR chalked off what would have been a late winner for Jordan Henderson in their Merseyside derby draw with Everton.

The Reds thought they had snatched all three points in a dramatic contest at Goodison Park.

Sadio Mane’s fastest goal for the Reds in a Premier League derby and Mohamed Salah’s 100th goal for the club had the reigning champions in front on two occasions. They were pegged back by the hosts, with Carlo Ancelotti’s side refusing to roll over even after seeing Richarlison sent off.

It looked as though Everton had fallen at the final hurdle in stoppage-time, as Henderson turned home a Sadio Mane cross, but the review process deemed that the Senegal international had strayed fractionally offside before teeing up his captain.

 

That call drew a bemused response from those watching on, with Klopp also unable to explain how those involved came to such a contentious decision.

He told BT Sport afterwards:

“For Henderson’s goal I didn’t see offside – but it is because someone decided it.”

VAR also did Liverpool few favours when ruling that Virgil van Dijk had strayed beyond the last man in the first half before he was clattered by Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford – who escaped any punishment despite forcing a Dutch defender from the field.

“I didn’t see it back but it took a while so obviously it wasn’t too big an offside and Jordan Pickford takes him out the game. I didn’t see it back I only saw it briefly,” Klopp said of that incident.
