Salah's brilliant assist gave Mane his 100th Premier League goal. The Video Assistant Referee and the VAR decision to allow Firmino's offside goal to stand have generated several reactions from fans.
The Brazilian International was in an offside position before Milner gave him the pass that lead to the goal. Despite the protest by Watford defenders, the VAR refused to review the goal for a possible offside.
The reason why VAR refused to cancel the goal is because Firmino was onside before Milner recieved the pass. The England International located Firmino who ran into a free space before scoring the goal.
It was a good and accurate decision by the Video Assistant Referee because Firmino was onside before Milner recieved the pass.
Firmino doubled the lead in the 53 minutes of the game through a silly mistake from Watford defenders. The Brazilian International was impressive from the beginning of the match to the end.
Jurgen Klopp's team looks unstoppable in the attack and their brilliant counter attack resulted to Mohamed Salah's goal in the 54th minutes of the game. It was a goal from the Egyptian International who scored his 7th league goal this season.
