Liverpool have asked the Premier League to review the use of VAR in a dramatic and highly controversial Merseyside derby that left Virgil van Dijk and Thiago Alcântara requiring scans on suspected knee injuries.

Liverpool contacted the Premier League for an explanation of why Pickford’s challenge was not scrutinised, which part of Mané’s body was deemed to be offside and the moment VAR decided to freeze the frame in its stoppage-time review.

Unfortunately Van Dijk got injured.

“He made good saves, he was focused and it was a good performance.

Jürgen Klopp was incensed after the champions were denied a 92nd-minute winner at Goodison Park and Everton’s goalkeeper, Jordan Pickford, escaped punishment for a dreadful foul that ended Van Dijk’s involvement after only six minutes.

VAR failed to review a possible red card for Pickford for serious foul play and disallowed Jordan Henderson’s stoppage-time strike for a fractional offside decision against Sadio Mané.

It was not our day but the performance was the performance I wanted to see.” The Liverpool manager admitted he was bewildered at the failure to review Pickford’s foul on Van Dijk.
