Liverpool’s arch rivals, Manchester United, were the latest in a long line of outfits perceived to have been done an injustice following a supposedly questionable VAR call.
The Red Devils were denied a free-kick after an apparent handball from Middlesbrough’s Duncan Watmore before providing an assist for Matt Crooks’ equaliser in the FA Cup clash.
The officials were thought, however, to be referring to the revised handball rules (as reported by the Premier League’s website (via BBC Sport)), with the 27-year-old winger’s indiscretion potentially deemed accidental.
It’s far from likely, of course, that the club’s fans will deem this anything closely resembling a fair decision, so it might be worth paying attention to the Twittersphere tonight should the eventual result not swing the way Ralf Rangnick’s men like.
