Liverpool registered a comprehensive 3-1 victory over fellow Premier League title contenders and defending champions Manchester City to take a significant step towards their first-ever PL title. However, their win wasn’t bereft of controversies as after a handball from Trent Alexander-Arnold was ignored by VAR in the lead up to the opening goal, Mohamed Salah was claimed to be offside en route to scoring the Reds’ second of the night.

Fans have claimed that as Andy Robertson played an early cross in Salah’s path, the Egyptian was offside. However, VAR spent little to no time in clarifying the decision, which had the fans talking and one of them came up with an explainer about why it was indeed offside.
