Wolverhampton Wanderers: Footage shows potential VAR mistake at Anfield

Image for Wolverhampton Wanderers: Footage shows potential VAR mistake at Anfield

Wolverhampton Wanderers supporters will be furious after seeing some footage posted on Twitter following their defeat on the final day of the season. 

Bruno Lage’s men ended their 2021/22 campaign with a defeat away from home at Anfield, but it appears they could have been awarded a penalty in the second half.

Should this have been a penalty?





Wolves took a surprise lead against the Reds with Jurgen Klopp’s men expected to cruise to victory on a day that decided who would get their hands on the title.

However, while Klopp’s men fought back to clinch the points, it seems the Wanderers could have potentially been handed a penalty for what appeared to be a push on Toti Gomes from Ibrahima Konate.

But Anthony Taylor was clearly unconvinced the incident warranted a penalty and Lage’s men were then forced to endure a Liverpool storm as the Reds fought for all three points.

TIF Thoughts on the footage…

There definitely appears to be a case for the Wolves players to appeal for a penalty, with the Liverpool defender seemingly nudging the 23-year-old in the back.

A similar incident occurred just the other week in the north London derby which saw Son Heung-min fouled by Cedric Soares with a push in the back which was awarded instantly as a penalty.

The incident happened just over a minute into the second half and if it was awarded and converted, it would have certainly made the task much bigger for Liverpool to claim all three points.
