Liverpool Jurgen Klopp was stunned by the poor performance of his team

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has requested a replay after the video assistant referee incorrectly disallowed Luis Diaz’s goal in the Premier League game against Tottenham.

VAR Darren England and assistant Dan Cook did not overrule when Diaz was flagged offside at 0-0 on Saturday.

Liverpool lost 2-1 thanks to a 96th-minute own goal from Joel Matip.

“Something like this never happened, so that is why I think a replay is the right thing to do,” said Klopp.

There is no prospect of the Premier League considering a replay, and it is unclear whether there has been a formal request from Liverpool.

Asked whether the club had asked—or would ask—the Premier League for a replay, Klopp said: “At this stage, we are still going through the information we have.”

The referees’ body, PGMOL, released the audio of discussions between the match officials over the offside on Tuesday.

In the audio, England says the check is “perfect” before.
