Chelsea Denied Opener Vs Liverpool After Timo Werner's Arm Is Judged Offside By VAR

Timo Werner thought he'd opened the scoring for Chelsea vs Liverpool - but VAR ruled it offside by the tightest of margins.

Werner latched on to a long ball from Jorginho and an onrushing Allison completely mistimed his challenge.

It allowed the German forward to burst into the box and calmly tap the ball home from close range.

But a VAR review showed Werner's arm was just offside thanks to Andy Robertson at left-back.


It was an incredibly close call and while it was technically the correct one, many fans have voiced their displeasure at the current offside rule.

Many watching at home believe these kinds of calls are 'ruining' the Premier League season.








Chelsea did manage to take the lead moments before half-time, thanks to Mason Mount's lovely solo effort.

Liverpool's best chance of the game came via Sadio Mane, who found himself through against Edouard Mendy.

However, he scuffed his shot and failed to trouble his fellow Senegal international.

Do you think Timo Werner deserved to be ruled offside?
