Jurgen Klopp said last season that linesmen not putting up the flag even when they know a player is offside would lead to an injury – and sadly – he’s been proven right.
Tonight, Mo Salah got played through on goal v Wolves, and despite being a yard off, the assistant kept his flag down – despite knowing the Egyptian was beyond the line…
In a desperate attempt to catch him, Connor Coady sprinted back and collided with his own keeper, Rui Patricio, who was knocked out upon impact.
It was a really nasty scene which saw the game paused for over ten minutes – and we can only hope Patricio will be ok as soon as possible.
A really horrible moment, and our thoughts are with him.
Salah scores – but he's offside!
