VAR decision denies Liverpool a victory over Manchester City as Mac Allister is fouled by Doku inside the penalty area…



Liverpool’s hopes for a 99th-minute penalty were dashed by VAR in a thrilling match at Anfield.


There were strong appeals for a penalty as Doku appeared to catch Mac Allister with a high foot to the chest, although he may have touched the ball first.


VAR reviewed the incident and ultimately decided that it was not a penalty. This controversial decision was a major talking point of the game.


It seems that Doku was lucky to escape punishment in this situation, which could be described as an ‘umpire’s call’. If the penalty had been given on the field, it likely would not have been overturned.


This meeting between Liverpool and Manchester City was truly one for the books, showcasing the caliber of two top contenders for the Premier League title. It served as a fitting finale, potentially marking the end of an era between Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola.


However, it’s important to acknowledge that there is a third club in the mix. Despite the intense and fierce draw between Liverpool and Manchester City, it was Arsenal who emerged as the true winners, maintaining their position at the top of the Premier League table.


With only 10 games remaining, it is still too close to predict the ultimate outcome. Arsenal currently holds a slight advantage over Liverpool in terms of goal difference, with Manchester City trailing closely behind.


While City may currently sit in third place, they are still considered the favorites as they strive for an unprecedented fourth consecutive title.


Nevertheless, Liverpool managed to unsettle them in a lively second half, leaving a lasting impact.


Notably, there were moments of tension during the match, such as Kevin de Bruyne’s disagreement with Guardiola after being substituted.


Similarly, Darwin Nunez expressed his dissatisfaction with Klopp, who has announced his departure at the end of the season. It is evident that no player wanted to miss out on the thrilling action that unfolded here.
