Liverpool Goalkeeper Alisson Picks Up Obvious Back-Pass From Andy Robertson, Nothing Is Given
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson got away with handling a blatant back-pass during Saturday afternoon's Premier League clash against Southampton.
To the surprise of many fans watching at home, the Brazilian shot stopper was not penalised by referee Kevin Friend after he picked up Andrew Robertson's lay off in the ninth minute.
In fact, every single Southampton player appealed for the obvious back-pass but nothing was given and the game continued without a VAR check.
Seconds after the Brazilian picked up the back-pass, cameras focused on the initial reaction of Robertson, who looked a little concerned as he glanced over to referee Friend.
Southampton managed to keep a clean sheet in the first half as Liverpool were denied a penalty when Roberto Firmino was dragged down in the penalty box.
But Jurgen Klopp's side, as they've done so often this season, managed to pounce on their dominance.
Former Saints midfielder Alex Oxlade Chamberlain netted the opener in the opening minutes of the second half; a solid effort from outside the area after a great piece of skill from Firmino.
