With Liverpool leading 1-0, Cesar Azpilicueta thought he had scored Chelsea’s equaliser but he had his goal ruled out for offside by VAR because Mason Mount was marginally offside in the build up.

Azpilicueta believes the goal would have been a turning point in the game.

“I was in the box,” Azpilicueta told Sky Sports after the game.

“I made the call and you don’t think it is going to be offside because the action was not a clear offside.

“With VAR you get a big disappointment because that could have been a big turning point in the game at 1-1 but then we concede the second goal.

“We are more and more used to VAR. What can you do? You have to celebrate the goal even if sometimes you risk it to be disallowed.

“We have to be used to it and get on with it.

“We are Chelsea and we want to win games. This is the moment to go forward now and get more points.

“Very disappointed with the result but we knew at half time we could hurt them a lot,” Azpi added.

“When you are 2-0 down it is hard but the team pushed and the fans pushed. We were unlucky not to get something from the game.”
