# Liverpool suffers from the worst misjudgment in history
“It won’t happen, but we have to play Tottenham again.”
This is what Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said about the misjudgment that occurred in the recent match against Tottenham. He spoke in very strong terms at the pre-Europa League group stage press conference. What kind of misjudgment was it that led to such strong remarks?
In the 7th round of the league against Tottenham, Liverpool was robbed of a goal due to a misjudgment and even missed the win. In the 33rd minute of the first half, when the score was 0-0, Luis Dias received a pass from Mohamed Salah and rushed in to score a fantastic goal. However, the assistant referee declared offside, and the VAR room also declared offside. However, Tottenham centre-back Christian Romero was one step behind Luis Dias. It was clearly onside, and there was no reason for the score to be cancelled. In the end, Liverpool lost 2-1 to Tottenham in extra time in the second half due to Joel Matip’s own goal.
After the match ended, the Premier League Officials’ Organization (PGMOL) officially acknowledged the mistake. Liverpool even requested VAR audio at the time. After the assistant referee called offside, the VAR referee said, “Check complete, check complete, That’s fine, perfect.” However, the VAR referee thought the assistant referee had called the call for onside. That’s right. The referee, who misunderstood that the offside was perfect, proceeded with the game as is. In other words, the cause was a miscommunication between the referees. # What was most needed was a ‘
Liverpool suffered damage due to an absurd mistake. Not only did they lose one goal, but their undefeated streak was also broken. In a sagging team atmosphere, Liverpool won 2-0 in the UEFA Europa League group stage match against Union Saint-Gillelois on the 6th. Although they won, it is true that they had a harder time than expected against a team that was a few numbers lower.
According to soccer statistics media ‘Fotmob’, Liverpool pushed their opponents by recording 73% ball possession and 19 shots. However, only two goals were scored. Even that goal was scored in extra time in the second half. It is true that they were unable to achieve an exciting victory against a team that was rated several numbers lower.
Liverpool needs a ‘refreshing’ victory. This is to soothe the hearts of fans who are angry about the unfair decision and to continue the good pace that was good at the beginning of the season. We are determined to completely wash away the sadness of the missed decision through a refreshing and refreshing victory in this away game against Brighton.
# ‘1 win in the last 5 games’, a faltering Brighton

Brighton appears to be faltering. In the 5 games played since the win against Manchester United, they have 1 win, 1 draw, and 3 losses. They only recorded a win against Bournemouth, who were at the bottom of the league, but lost to AEK Athens in the Europa League and Chelsea in the EFL Cup, and were defeated by a whopping 1-6 against Aston Villa.
