Roberto Firmino Goal Controversially Disallowed By VAR Despite Being Onside

Robert Firmino's goal against Aston Villa was controversially disallowed by VAR despite the striker being onside.

Liverpool went behind after Trezeguet's goal in the 21st minute and the visitors thought they had leveled when their Brazilian forward hit the back of the net as Sadio Mane curled a lovely ball across the box.

But his goal was chalked off even though he appeared to be in an onside position. Check it out below:
