VAR robs Liverpool again in a controversial 93th minute Brighton penalty equalizer as the game ended Brighton 1-1 Liverpool
A match that was destined to be a 0-1 victory for Liverpool was stolen by VAR. Penalty was awarded in the 93th minute to Brighton for what was not a clear and obvious error to be overturned by VAR.
Further, Salah’s opening goal was cancelled by VAR deemed to be offside by micrometers. Yet no published records about the error bracket within which VAR operates.
Sadio Mane’s 84th minute goal was also called offside after VAR’s intervention.

VAR however awarded Brighton two penalties with Maupay missing on the spot before limping off injured. The 93th minute equalizing penalty is the most controversial even as Brighton’s players reactions as they did not believe with the call.
Everton vs Liverpool?
Earlier in the season, VAR deemed Pickford’s season ending foul on Van Djik not worthy of a penalty or a red card. This is the standard of officiating that brings disrepute to the game.
Even Henderson’s winner against Everton was ruled offside as Sadio was judged by VAR to have been offside which he was not.
