Viewers in disbelief as Liverpool forward Luis Diaz has goal ruled out against Spurs

Liverpool forward Luis Díaz had a goal chalked off by VAR during their Premier League clash against Spurs, but replays appear to show he was onside.

The Colombian thought he'd put Jurgen Klopp's side ahead in the 33rd minute of Saturday's game in North London when he beat Guglielmo Vicario with a cool finish.

But the assistant raised his flag almost immediately and the goal was ruled out – a decision that was questioned by many following Sky Sports' replay of the incident.

As you can see from the footage below, it appears Spurs defender Cristian Romero was playing Diaz on with his foot.


Andy Gray and Richard Keys reviewed the incident on beIN Sports at half-time. "He's at least a metre onside," Gray says. "It's not even close."

At the half-time break, Sky Sports said they hadn't been provided with an image of the offside lines for Diaz's disallowed goal.

Here's how social media reacted to the controversial offside call.


One said: "Am I missing something? Luis Díaz looks well onside. I understand the angles bad, but the cut of grass makes it look very onside,' while another commented: "Someone explain to me how Luis Diaz is offside here."

A third wrote: "Two red cards and what appears to be a VAR mess up with the Diaz offside. Think Klopp might have a rant."

A fourth said: "Someone is going to have to explain that Diaz offside to me. No lines drawn, no major review. He looks way on."

A fifth added: "Will there be an audio recording of the officials making the decision to rule Diaz offside?"



Son Heung-min opened the scoring for Spurs in the 36th minute before Cody Gakpo equalised for nine-man Liverpool before half-time.

Then, after an evenly-matched second-half, Joel Matip fired the ball into his own net to seal all three points for Ange Postecoglou's men.

Thoughts on the Diaz decision? Let us know in the comments.
