Klopp confused by VAR decision in Merseyside derby

Jurgen Klopp was confused by controversial VAR decisions after a 2-2 draw against Everton.

Jordan Henderson scored a winner goal in additional time at Goodison Park, but it was disallowed by VAR decision.

Jordan Pickford had a good day with some excellent saves but he was also lucky that VAR ruled out Liverpool's third goal and he was not sent off for the foul on Virgil van Dijk.

Michael Keane and Dominic Calvert-Lewin netted for Everton and Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah scored for Liverpool. Richarlison was sent off for his foul on Thiago Alcantara.

Being excited due to his team's performance, Klopp was confused by VAR decisions.

Klopp told BT Sport, "The performance was top. A good game from both teams. We were clear, dominant against a side that is full of confidence. We played a really good game, probably the best away game since I am at Liverpool, playing at Goodison. In the end it's 2-2 for different reasons."

He talked about Pickford's tackle that led to the Dutchman's injury and said the offside was not too big before Everton goalkeeper kicked Liverpool defender.

He also said Henderson's goal was not offside and needs somebody to explain about it.

The German manager praised Calvert-Lewin for his stunning goal for the Toffees.

One point was enough for the Reds to go to the second place. It is worth mentioning that Liverpool have not lost to Everton for 10 years since 17 October 2010.
