FIFA has just announced VERY SAD NEWS for the Officials and Referees of the match between Liverpool FC Vs CHELSEA and this have cost them thier Job

In the 4-1 thrashing that Chelsea suffered at the hands of Liverpool on Wednesday, Mauricio Pochettino was forced to lament the choices of the referees as much as the poor performance of his team. Chelsea was denied two penalties. Following a terrible first half, the Blues were defeated by a significant margin; yet, the outcome may have been quite different.

Paul Tierney not only issued a penalty for diving on Ben Chilwell before halftime, which was a ruling that was correct, but he also neglected to punish Virgil van Dijk for a tackle on Conor Gallagher earlier in the game. The challenge, in which Van Dijk’s knee collided with the Englishman approximately outside the six-yard area, was reviewed by the video assistant referee (VAR).

On the other hand, the Reds were lucky enough to get away with the decision since Joe Cole came forth with his thoughts regarding the incident. “Sterling goes into the box, and Gallagher takes a lovely touch, and Van Dijk just squares himself off, and I think he just leans into him there,” said the player who had previously played for Chelsea and Liverpool.

On my end, that constitutes a punishment. It seems to me that the referee has not shown any bravery in front of the Kop during the opening ten minutes of the match.

Diogo Jota scored the first goal for Chelsea, and very quickly after that, Chelsea was made to pay for their general lack of intensity. Before Darwin Nunez was given the opportunity to make it 3-0 from the penalty spot himself, Connor Bradley had already increased the lead with his score. When Liverpool was called for a foul on Jota by Benoit Badiashile, which was a foul that could not be contested, Tierney gave Liverpool the benefit of the doubt.

“It’s a great ball from Joe Gomez and then you see it in slow motion, he steps on his foot and with VAR you get those decisions,” Rio Ferdinand further said. Chelsea, on the other hand, has been really sloppy and has been slow to everything. You likely believed that they would have put it to bed here with a goal, but it’s just not falling for Nunez at the moment!

Unfortunately for Pochettino, things went from bad to worse after halftime, despite the fact that Nunez’s penalty shot hit the post, which was one of four times he found the woodwork rather than the net. Around the middle of the second half, Dominik Szoboszlai scored a goal with his head to ensure the victory.

Christopher Nkunku did provide Chelsea with a consolation goal, and for a brief period of time, it appeared as though they might be able to reduce the deficit to just one goal. However, a few moments later, it appeared that the Frenchman had been fouled inside the box. When Ally McCoist was providing analysis, she posed the question, “Has van Dijk kicked through him?” Oh, he is aware of that he is!

“I’ll tell you right now that he does, and there ought to be a punishment. As he catches him with his right leg, I believe that should be considered a penalty. You can see that Van Dijk made contact there, and wow, it’s a penalty that lasts all day. Without a shadow of a doubt, he manages to catch his right leg.

John Brooks conducted a second investigation into the event, but according to Pochettino, nothing came of it. This was a source of frustration for him. In the passage that followed the tackle, the 51-year-old player was seen furious on the bench and yelling at the fourth official throughout the entire sequence.

McCoist continued to emphasise that Liverpool was more much deserved of the victory, despite the fact that Chelsea had been dealt a difficult hand by the officials. The result left Pochettino’s team in a position where they are in the middle of the league.

Despite the fact that they started the week with the opportunity to be seventh, the Blues might wind up in the bottom half of the standings. They have now suffered six losses in their past seven matches away from home as well.
