Football news - Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: VAR got it wrong - Three Leicester players were offside
Jurgen Klopp acknowledged that his side's defensive frailty cost them two goals as they lost 3-1 to Leicester City on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League. However, he criticised the VAR decision that allowed James Maddison's equaliser to stand despite a contentious offside scenario.
Speaking after the game to the BBC, he said: "It was a clear game that we should win. We played good football, dominated possession, took the game out of Leicester but apart from that we were really top in the game. We scored a goal, could have and should have scored more, whatever.

“Everything fine and then penalty, free-kick, offside, not offside, goal. That had a proper impact. That is something that has to change. The first goal for me is offside. The difference is we think it's an objective thing but it's not.
"Three players offside for Leicester but it was decided to take another moment in the game. That is how it is. The second goal is a misunderstanding obviously. It is a situation where we should shout and I didn't hear anyone shout.
“It is not that cool. The third goal I really don't like. We are so open. I cannot accept. That was it. The performance for 75 minutes or so was outstanding then we lost 3-1. That shows what a tricky situation we are in."
