Fans can't believe Liverpool's second goal wasn't offside

Football fans were left in disbelief that Curtis Jones' second goal in Liverpool's game against Leicester City was allowed to stand.

Monday Night Football kicked off with Howard Webb revealing the conversations that go on between referees and VAR officials in the Premier League, for the first time.

It was an interesting insight into how VAR actually works, although many found the whole process a bit pointless as Webb went through lots of not very controversial decisions.

Gary Neville questioned why fans couldn't hear the chats in real time to give more transparency to decisions, with Webb explaining that was FIFA's fault.

However, it didn't take too much longer on Monday for fans to get their hands on yet another example of things being controversial.

Liverpool were taking on Leicester in a must win game for both for very different reasons, with Jurgen Klopp's side in the hunt for Champions League and Leicester attempting to avoid relegation.

Jones put the visitors ahead after 33 minutes, with VAR checking for offside but noting that there were no issues at all in the build up.

However just three minutes later, Jones again put the ball away but this time it looked for all the world that he'd gone beyond the last defender, only for the officials at Stockley Park to give the goal.

"How the f**k, is that not offside?!", questioned one fan.

"Of course it stood. Blatantly offside. Desperate to get Liverpool in the top four," claimed one fan, suggesting some sort of conspiracy theory.

A third added, "Curtis Jones again despite looking totally obviously offside."

One Newcastle United supporter, worried about the possibility of his side being overtaken in the Champions League places said, "Two possible offside goals… nah it’s Livarpool… both onside."

"Like how exactly is that not offside, you can literally see it! This is beyond a joke, operation get Liverpool into the top four well and truly on," complained a Manchester United fan in the same position.

And another raged, "That’s f***ing off side!!!!! By a mile! You don’t need f***ing lines for that! liVARpool!! Bollocks!!"

Ahead of Monday, Klopp's team had put six wins on the bounce together to put pressure on both Uniteds above them in the league.

The win for Erik ten Hag's side had put them back to four points above Liverpool and Newcastle were in the same position, after they dropped two points to Leeds United.

A win over Leicester would put them back to just a point behind their rivals, though the pair above them in third and fourth would have a game in hand.

Leicester's own situation is starting to become desperate and a loss would leave them still two points away from safety with only two matches left to play.
