In Liverpool's last two Premier League games before the international break, Reds striker Darwin Núñez saw a couple of goals ruled out for offside in the first half.

Wenger wants the attacker to be classified as onside if any part of his body is level with the last defender, rather than offside if any part of his body is ahead.

According to Spanish publication Marca, via The Daily Record, lawmakers IFAB are considering whether this change should be implemented.

In 2021/22, when the Reds amassed 92 points and finished one behind champion Manchester City, they recorded the second-highest line, on average, of any team in the league after Pep Guardiola's side at 50.2 meters (as per markrstats).

It's a brave gameplan but Liverpool has mastered it, finishing either first or second in the league for opponent offsides in each of the last five seasons.

Season Offsides Rank Lead 2018/19 124 2nd - 2019/20 142 1st 43 2020/21 95 2nd - 2021/22 144 1st 50 2022/23 88 =2nd -

However, if attackers are now legally able to almost bypass the last defender, so long as their heel is line, then logically Liverpool will have to adopt a more conservative approach, compromising its pressing game, or stick with its current philosophy and risk being exposed.

As reported by ESPN's Dale Johnson, Premier League clubs will vote on the implementation of the system in the spring, and you'd imagine Liverpool will be among the most enthusiastic supporters.
