Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta had a goal disallowed by VAR for an offside call on Mason Mount in the build-up to the goal.

Azpilicueta’s goal would have cancelled out Trent Alexander-Arnold’s opener. Liverpool then doubled their lead 15 minutes later before N’Golo Kante pulled one back in the 71st minute.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard believes VAR kills the moment for fans and players.

Lampard told talkSPORT: “It’s here to stay, so it’s frustrating. It definitely kills the moment, that’s for sure.

“People pay their money and they want to celebrate, the players want to celebrate and now, we’re all going to have to try to wait a moment. It’s difficult.

“I saw the Tottenham game yesterday [where VAR disallowed a Serge Aurier goal against Leicester], and it’s a shame when you’re talking about tough decisions.

“But we have to accept it, it’s here, it’s not going anywhere, I just hope some go in our favour very soon.”
