VAR controversy shouldn’t detract from yet another sobering defeat,This has never happened before!, I think we need Artificial intelligence to take over VAR

PGMOL has apologised after Luis Diaz was wrongly disallowed a goal during Liverpool’s dramatic 2-1 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening. Diaz thought he had scored a first-half opener at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium but was denied by the offside flag.

However, VAR didn’t draw lines to check the call, and replays seemingly showed Cristian Romero’s outstretched leg keeping Diaz onside.

Viewers were left baffled by the decision, especially given VAR checked it but opted against drawing the customary lines.

Sky Sports’ coverage could not review the decision due to not being sent the lines, which intensified the fury among Liverpool fans and suggested that PGMOL had accepted the mistake.

And PGMOL has now admitted the latest high-profile error by Premier League officials, publishing an apologetic statement.

It read: ‘PGMOL acknowledge a significant amount of human error occured during the first half of Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool.

‘The goal by Luis Diaz was disallowed for offside by the on-field team of match officials. This was a clear and obvious factual error and should have resulted in the goal being awarded through VAR intervention, however, the VAR failed to intervene.

PGMOL will conduct a full review into the circumstances which led to the error. PGMOL will immediately be contacting Liverpool at the conclusion of the fixture to acknowledge the error.’

minute rather harshly after Destiny Udogie looked to have tripped himself up under pressure from the Portuguese star.

However, just 24 seconds later, Jota was entirely at fault for a rush of blood to the head, which saw him chop Udogie down on the left, earning his marching orders.

Liverpool showed heart and character to hold on until the final minute of six added on, but a harsh Joel Matip own goal handed Spurs an almighty three points.

Refereeing controversy has shrouded another big occasion to make the defeat even more sour for Jurgen Klopp’s visitors. And the more PGMOL apologies that arrive, the higher the frustration will grow.
