What is the point in VAR if it doesn’t give a push for this?
A video by BT Sport is being shared on Twitter that shows how blatant the push on Joe Gomez actually was for the first goal v Bournemouth today.
The centre-back was literally shoved off the ball, yet neither the referee, his assistant or even worse, the VAR (who had the luxury of this angle) decided it was worthy of a foul.
The more times you watch it, the more ridiculous the decision gets.
Liverpool showed fighting strength in scoring two first-half goals in response though, which was terrific to see.
Jurgen Klopp was furious by the decision, by the way, and celebrated with purpose upon our equaliser.
