Carlo Ancelotti didn’t appear to have much sympathy for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp after Saturday’s incident-filled Merseyside derby.

The Everton boss told talkSPORT he was ‘very happy’ to see the Reds’ late winning goal be ruled out for a cruel offside, as the rivals drew 2-2 in a thrilling Goodison Park clash.

But it’s the two huge VAR incidents that bookended the match that will have people talking – Jordan Pickford escaping a red card for a shocking tackle that saw Virgil van Dijk limp off early on, and captain Jordan Henderson seeing his late winner chalked off for an offside call that apparently defied all logic.

“With the last goal,” Ancelotti continued, “VAR has to make the decision.

Jurgen Klopp was more than a bit irritated by some of the decisions, with the Liverpool boss practically speechless when quizzed about the disallowed goal – with Sadio Mane adjudged to be offside by the narrowest of margins in the build-up – after the match.

“Honestly it was offside, but I couldn’t say this and the referee couldn’t say this… but the VAR had a fantastic control of this,” he added with a smile.

The game had everything, with four goals, Mohamed Salah netting his 100th in a Liverpool shirt, Dominic Calvert-Lewin breaking an Everton record, and a red card for Toffees star Richarlison.
