Typical of Liverpool’s season so far. Manchester City spend first five minutes attacking Liverpool’s goal, Alexander-Arnold handball outside natural silhouette not given as a penalty, Liverpool break from it and score past reserve goalkeeper.

...Manchester City then fail to put away two opportunities from close range. Liverpool score from their second attack following a tight offside call which is also not overruled by VAR.

Interesting that when the Premier League belatedly delivers an image of this offside call the only VAR line drawn is for the last defender. The VAR line for Salah is not included. Also worth noting the technology is not accurate enough to reliably make calls this tight.

Not a handball according to Michael Oliver and the VAR.

Sadio Mane pushes Raheem Sterling in the back in the penalty area. Neither Oliver or VAR give a penalty. Rodri booked for protesting. Some very interesting decision making in this match, the most important of the Premier League season.

..Whether or not the referee and VAR deemed Alexander-Arnold’s handball sufficient for a penalty, there is an argument that under the current handball law Liverpool’s goal should have been disallowed because the ball struck a hand in the build-up.

Sorry, wrong citation there. This is the part of the new Law that could be used to argue that Alexander-Arnold’s handball should have resulted in Liverpool’s first goal being disallowed.

Schrödinger’s Handball. Has football’s worst Law decided who wins the Premier League title?

Steve McManaman: ‘VAR had no impact on today’s game at all. ‘People are moaning now: ‘You can see it, VAR is this.’ This has nothing to do with it. Nothing to do with it. We shouldn’t even be talking about VAR when it comes to this goal.’ You couldn’t make this stuff up.

Bernardo Silva on whether Manchester City should have had a penalty: ‘If I speak I will be in trouble. I don’t want to speak. ‘I haven’t watched it. You guys analyse it.’
