Jurgen Klopp wants replay of EPL match vs Tottenham following VAR error

Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp is today calling for the Premier League game against Tottenham to be replayed after Luis Diaz’s goal was wrongly disallowed by the video assistant referee.

Var Darren England and Assistant Dan Cook did not overrule when Diaz was flagged offside  on Saturday, and Liverpool later lost the game 2-1. 

It is understood that there is no prospect of the premier league considering a replay and it is unclear whether there has been a formal request from Liverpool.

Referees’ body PGMOL released the audio of discussions between the match officials over the offside yesterday, and in the audio, England says the check is “perfect” before swearing when he realizes a mistake has been made.

Klopp said, the audio didn’t change the fact and it is an obvious mistake. adding that there should be solutions for that and the outcome should be a replay. 

There is no precedent in the UK for a result to be changed or a game to be replayed because of a refereeing error.
