Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson thought he’d scored the winner in the Merseyside Derby, only for it to be ruled out by VAR.
A call for offside was given and the midfielder’s goal was cruelly stricken, but there is strong evidence to suggest it should have stood.
In a photo taken by The Athletic’s James Pearce, a still taken from VAR’s screens shows Sadio Mane is actually marginally onside in the build-up.
It was a game filled with shocking decisions, but this one is perhaps the most ridiculous and a basic call to get right – and it’s cost us.
