VAR Denies Leicester City A Penalty After Joel Matip Handball

Leicester City fans are no doubt fuming after they were not awarded a penalty at Anfield.

The call just further highlights the inconsistencies with what is and isn't deemed to be handball in the Premier League.

Liverpool went 1-0 up in the 21st minute after Jonny Evans headed into his own net from a James Milner corner.

Diogo Jota then extended the lead just before half-time, continuing his electric run of scoring in every home Premier League appearance this term by notching the second after a cross from Andy Robertson from the left.
