Premier League have just announced the shocking VAR Error By referees of Liverpool United VS Cheosea- PGMOL under scrutiny over surprising VAR mistake made by The Referee during the Liverpool match not awarding a penalty to Chelsea after rough footyVirgil van Dijk tackle

Virgil van Dijk escapes punishment for one! The explanation for why VAR disallowed Chelsea’s penalty against Liverpool even though the Reds’ captain appeared to trip Conor Gallagher.

In Jurgen Klopp’s first home league game since his shocking departure announcement, the Reds dominated early on, but Chelsea had a chance when Gallagher was passed in by Raheem Sterling. The Blues midfielder was taken down by a challenge from Van Dijk, but Paul Tierney did not give a penalty, and the VAR did not choose to reverse the ruling.

Gallagher’s right leg looked to make contact with Van Dijk’s right knee, causing him to go down. Referee Tierney did not believe there was sufficient contact for the Chelsea player to be given a penalty since the player was falling slightly before the Dutchman made contact. Tierney’s initial ruling was upheld because John Brooks, acting as VAR, did not deem the decision to be sufficiently flawed.

For Mauricio Pochettino’s team, who suffered from nearly the very first minute at a boisterous Anfield, the opportunity was a rare sight of goal. Liverpool’s lively midfield dominated Moises Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez, while Ben Chilwell was frequently reckless in possession. The home team’s pressure paid off in the 23rd minute when Diogo Jota broke the stalemate. Following a Conor Bradley pass, the Portuguese slamming between Chelsea’s lacklustre center-backs and slipping by Djordje Petrovic.

Before the break, Bradley scored his first-ever goal for Liverpool with a brilliant finish, putting Klopp’s team ahead.
