Viral Video Shows How Liverpool Have Been Hard Done By Refereeing Decisions

A video showing all of the key VAR decisions to go against Liverpool has gone viral on Twitter.

The Reds were furious with no less than THREE VAR calls in their 1-0 defeat to Southampton last night. In addition to two penalty shouts, there was also a two-footed challenge from Theo Walcott on James Milner in the second half that went unpunished.

And the decisions at St Mary's have only further riled up Liverpool supporters, who feel they are constantly being down over by officials.

This two minute video from @CF_Comps highlights all the times decisions have not gone in favour of Jurgen Klopp's side.

It starts with what happened at Southampton and quickly transitions into footage from the game Merseyside Derby at Goodison Park, where Jordan Pickford escaped action for a horror challenge that injured Virgil Van Dijk and the visitors had a dramatic Jordan Henderson winner chalked off because Sadio Mane was deemed to be offside.

Liverpool have been frustrated by a whole host of fractional offside calls, including Mo Salah vs Brighton, Roberto Firmino vs Aston Villa and Mane vs Watford - the latter two happening in their historic title-winning campaign in 2019/20 despite the 'LiVARpool' tags at the time.

There's also the bizarre decision not to overturn Marcus Rashford's goal in the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford last term despite a clear foul on Divock Origi in the build-up, while Liverpool had a Firmino strike ruled out for a challenge on David De Gea in the reverse fixture at Anfield.

More recently, Mane had his leg pulled by Karl Darlow in last week's 0-0 draw away at Newcastle and Reds fans won't be forgetting the controversial penalties against Sheffield United and Brighton that finish off the compilation.

Annoyed after a third consecutive Premier League game without a win, Klopp brought up United's penalty record in his post-match interview last night.

He told Sky Sports: "I hear now that Manchester United had more penalties in two years than I had in five-and-a-half years. I've no idea if that's my fault, or how that can happen.

"But it's no excuse for the performance. We cannot change it, we have to respect the decisions. But we can change our performance. That's our focus now."

Liverpool have dropped more points than they did in the whole of last season after their recent blip and although they remain top on goal difference, United will be ahead of their rivals going into their meeting at Anfield on 17 January should they win their game in hand against Burnley in a a week.
