Liverpool Fan Expertly Clarifies How Leicester City's First Goal Was Actually Offside

A Liverpool fan has posted a detailed image of Leicester City's opening goal, clarifying how it was actually OFFSIDE.

VAR controversially awarded Leicester with a goal which proved crucial as the hosts beat Liverpool 3-1 on Saturday.

Liverpool supporters fumed on social media following the VAR call with Klopp insisting Leicester's goal was incorrectly called a goal.

He told talkSPORT: "We conceded a really strange goal - I've said this plenty of times but it's VAR. VAR should be completely objective, but it's not.

"Because somebody has to make a decision whether it's offside or not and which moment is the moment when we judge the offside.

"I've seen [the replay] back plenty of time now and how I saw it is that Maddison didn't even touch the ball when he judged the situation.

"That's obviously a situation where Stuart Attwell has to show responsibility for why he chose that situation."

Asked whether he thinks Stuart Attwell paused the image at the wrong moment, the German replied: "Yes, of course. His foot [Maddison] is behind the ball, so how can somebody know he already touched ball?

"A millisecond later and three Leicester players are closer to the goal. That's it."

Liverpool's sixth Premier League defeat of the season leaves them faltering in fourth place, 13 points adrift of league leaders Manchester City.
