Luis Diaz’s first half goal was disallowed for offside but reply shows that the goal should have been given.
LIVERPOOL DENIED A LEGITIMATE GOAL
The Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) released a statement after the game.
“PGMOL acknowledge a significant human error occurred during the first half of Tottenham Hotspur v 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.”
