Fans Think VAR Missed A "Clear" Push By Sadio Mane In The Build-Up To Liverpool's Goal
Fans think VAR missed a "clear" push by Sadio Mane during the build-up to his match winner against Norwich City.
Second-half substitute Mane scored a brilliant goal to ensure victory for Liverpool on Saturday, but fans weren't impressed with VAR for not ruling out his 78th minute strike.
The Senegalese appeared to push Norwich defender Christoph Zimmermann in the back before controlling the ball and smashing home his side's goal.
He does not miss...

VAR checked the goal but saw nothing wrong. However, Mane's push sent social media into overdrive.

"Clear push by mane but different rules for Liverpool," one social media user wrote.
A second tweeted: "If that's any other club that goal is ruled out."
A third added: "VAR mysteriously missed him push the player though. If it'd been Wolves or Sheff utd the goal would of been disallowed."
Another wrote: "Clearly pushes him meaning he misses the header."
Did VAR make the right call? Let us know.
