It all worked out for Liverpool in the end, but VAR’s decision to disallow Sadio Mane’s fantastic goal was a poor one, robbing us of a great assist from Thiago Alcantara.

Mane’s goal was ruled out for offside but VAR made a major error with the decisions as the Senegal international was level.

The line indicating Mane’s supposed offside position connects with his arm and, last time I checked, you cannot score with your arm, therefore the goal should have been allowed.

Liverpool were robbed of a few goals last season, but the biggest mistake VAR made as far as the Reds will be concerned was failing to give Jordan Pickford a red card for tearing Virgil van Dijk’s ACL.

With 15 points from 15, and the potential to make it a perfect group stage performance with a win over AC Milan at the San Siro in December, the Merseysiders have to be considered one of the favourites to win the tournament.

Even if it had caused the Reds to drop points, qualification for the Round of 16 was confirmed against Atletico Madrid in the fourth group stage game of the season.

VAR has been a lot better this season.
