Crystal Palace Goal Against Liverpool Controversially Ruled Out By VAR For Foul On Dejan Lovren

Crystal Palace Goal Against Liverpool Controversially Ruled Out By VAR For Foul On Dejan Lovren

Liverpool were handed a VAR reprieve against Crystal Palace as James Tomkins had a goal ruled out at Selhurst Park.

The Palace centre-back thought he gave the home side the lead just before half-time, or at least he thought he had.

VAR was involved once again, and after another lengthy delay the goal was ruled out for a push on defender Dejan Lovren.

Jordan Ayew was adjudged to have fouled the Croatian centre-back in the build-up to the goal, and the Selhurst Park faithful were left furious by the decision to disallow it.

The ball seemed to have comfortably gone over Lovren's head and there was nothing he could have done even if the foul didn't take place.

Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling said on Soccer Saturday: "He would have needed a stepladder to get to the ball."

Paul Merson added: "Shall we give Liverpool the league now?"

Liverpool went on to win the game 2-1 with second-half goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

VAR has caused controversy from the minute it was brought into the Premier League this season.

Liverpool have often been at the centre of VAR debate this season as well.

But the Reds escaped against Manchester City last time out when Trent Alexander-Arnold clearly handled the ball in the box, but neither the referee or VAR awarded a penalty.

VAR - the gift that keeps on giving.
