Liverpool lost this Saturday in the Premier League against Tottenham (2-1). The game could have been completely different if the Luis Diaz goal – disallowed for offside – had been allowed. The England referee admitted to making the wrong decision on this aspect of the game.
Liverpool may regret it. Reduced to nine against Tottenham, the Reds almost escaped with the point of a draw, but Matip came to crucify his own team at the end of extra time (2-1).
However, the game could have taken a completely different turn after half an hour, Luis Diaz, who was shot deep down the middle, won his duel against Vicario and opened the scoring. In the end, his goal was disallowed for an offside position and Heung Min Son opened the scoring two minutes later.

An investigation will be conducted to understand the circumstances surrounding this failure. explains the organization.
