During stoppage-time of the first-half of action between Liverpool and Aston Villa in this afternoon’s Premier League tie, the Reds thought ...
The Brazilian took a touch before rifling the ball into the net, but the celebrations were cut short when the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) was called into action.
Jota was ruled to have been offside in the build-up to the crucial leveller for Jurgen Klopp’s underperforming side, with the Portuguese star’s elbow just offside when stacked next to Ezri Konsa.

It doesn’t seem like there will ever be football without a system like VAR, so a total end to the method is out of the question, but how exactly should they change the rules in regards to offside calls?
