Riyad Mahrez wasted no time in grabbing a phone and complaining to the Manchester City bench about Mohamed Salah's first-half goal.
Andy Robertson whipped in a superb cross to the back post where Liverpool star Salah came charging in and smashed home a powerful header.
While questions were raised over the 27-year-old Egyptian winger being onside, Salah's goal stood and Liverpool managed to avoid any more VAR drama at Anfield.
Mahrez, who was an unused substitute, was caught showing City assistant coach Mikel Arteta and his teammates a replay of the goal.
And some eagle-eyed fans took to social media to question how he managed to use a phone during the match.
Liverpool put on a superb performance to beat City 3-1 and move nine points clear of the defending Premier League champions.
The Reds successfully put City's weakened backline under pressure and opened the scoring in the sixth minute thanks to a superb long-range effort from Fabinho.
Salah doubled Liverpool's lead in the 13th minute and put Jurgen Klopp's men in a comfortable position before half-time.
Liverpool started the second half strong and were rewarded when Jordan Henderson picked out Sadio Mane at the back post.
And the 27-year-old Senegalese winger managed to squeeze the ball past a helpless Claudio Bravo, who started in place of the injured Ederson.
Bernardo Silva struck back for City in the 78th minute, but the defending champions were condemned to a 3-1 defeat at Anfield.
Liverpool, who have won 11 of their opening 12 league matches, have only dropped points in a 1-1 draw to Manchester United last month.
The Reds will return to Premier League action after the international break when they travel to Crystal Palace.
