Mark Clattenburg believes one football law should be changed after Everton's penalty against Liverpool on Saturday.

To avoid any more incorrect reds like the one for Luiz, the law should be changed."

However, Clattenburg has suggested the VAR check was for a possible red card rather than whether or not a penalty was the correct decision.

"It was a penalty, but it was good to see common sense prevail and Alexander-Arnold avoid a red card.

But Clattenburg has praised Saturday's officials for using common sense when making their decision on the full-back and has called for the law to be changed to prevent controversial repeat incidents.

"The 22-year-old could have been dismissed for the denial of an obvious goalscoring opportunity with no attempt to play the ball, if referee Chris Kavanagh had followed the same principles which saw David Luiz shown red at Wolves.

Referee Chris Kavanagh awarded a spot-kick and stuck to his original decision following a brief check on the VAR pitchside monitor.
