VAR Controversy Dominates Liverpool Vs Manchester City First Half

VAR Controversy Dominates Liverpool Vs Manchester City First Half

Manchester City were on the receiving end of a poor referee decision and Liverpool instantly made them pay through Fabinho's brilliant strike, before Mo Salah doubled the lead from a questionable position.

Fans were excited about the clash of England's best two sides with undefeated Liverpool going into the game six points ahead of champions City at Anfield.

Pep Guardiola's side couldn't really afford to lose but they found themselves behind after just six minutes thanks to a wonderful strike from Fabinho, but the goal wasn't without controversy.

As usual VAR was being questioned after Trent Alexander-Arnold appeared to handle in the Liverpool box before the Reds' went up the other end of the pitch to score.

Fans on social media and commentators Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher all believed that Alexander-Arnold's outstretched arm should have concluded with a spot kick, with Raheem Sterling ready to strike if the defender had missed the ball.

But things were to get even worse for the visitors just seven minutes later. Mo Salah headed home to make it 2-0 from Andy Roberton's cross but there's a chance it should have been ruled offside by VAR.
