EPL: Jurgen Klopp frustrated with VAR decision against Man United

Jurgen Klopp expressed huge frustration as his side was denied a goal by VAR in their match at Old Trafford on Sunday. The match pitting Liverpool with Manchester United ended 1-1 thereby ending their winning streak in the Premier League.

Marcus Rashford scored the first goal of the match in the first half with an assist from Daniel James. But, Klopp believes that Man United defender, Lindelof, was supposed to be booked for the foul against Origi...

"They scored a goal which shows all the problems with VAR. Mr. Atkinson let the game run I'm sure because there is VAR. For me, it was a clear foul. It's a general problem. VAR looks and says 'you decided like this'. But it was a foul. There was clear contact and Divock Origi goes down. They carried on and counter-attacked. I'm sure they (United) said it is not a 'clear foul?' That doesn't work. That's just not how it should be."

Also, the goal from Sadio Mane for the Reds was disallowed by VAR due to a handball offense...


"Then we got a disallowed goal. I didn't see it back but it was probably handball but everything just seemed to go against us."

Watch the highlight

Liverpool was able to share the spoils with the Red Devils as a substitute, Adam Lallana, equalized five minutes to stoppage time.

"We were good enough for a point. We gave Man Utd an opportunity to play the way they wanted to play with five at the back. They were hardworking. Our orientation wasn't good enough. We felt under pressure when we weren't. Then we scored the goal and was in charge of the game. The stadium was silent and people probably thought Liverpool would score but we take the point and move on. I don't think Man Utd can play like this if the other team doesn't have the ball as much. We play very often against a team like this. Maybe we can do better. One point is completely fine. We carry on."

What do you think? Is Klopp correct about the Lindelof foul or not?
