Blimey, imagine Liverpool scoring and then VAR giving a penalty.

It's a farce. Once again, as much cheering on the VAR decision as the goal itself.

I want Man City to win so, of course, VAR is on Liverpool's side today.

How on earth can someone look at that footage and decide its not handball?

The VAR offical bottled it 'cos Liverpool scored. Another example, were it needed, of the pickle VAR can get the game in.

It would be unthinkable for VAR to give a penalty to Man City up the Kop end

Salad was offside!!  It was a pen the other end.  VAR is a disgrace.

VAR is out to get me personally. Every game I watch, it goes with the team I don't want to win.

Two very interesting VAR decisions... why haven't we seen the slide rule for Salah's goal... looked just off.

Why can't we see it again, it looked more off than Sheff Utd yesterday?
If TV viewers are being denied the chance to look, conspiracy theories will abound.

It really is the way they're using it. For big incidents in what are big games the ref should be encouraged to go to the monitor and have a look.

The fact they're being discouraged from doing that says it all for the awful implementation so far. It's not perfectly used in the other leagues but the decisions made are much more fairer with refs having a second look on penalties and offsides.

Absolutely.  Unless I missed something, Salah looked offside, but there seemed to be a cursory look at most.

The league table is mental at the moment. 3 points separating 5th from 15th
