Gary Neville agrees that PGMOL's mistake to incorrectly review Luis Diaz's goal against Tottenham Hotspur for offside was 'horrendous', whilst also stating 'something hasn't felt right' with regards to VAR this season.
The moment of peak controversy arrived in the 34th minute of Saturday evening's defeat in North London. Diaz latched onto a through ball from Mohamed Salah and fired beyond Guglielmo Vicario to hand the Reds the lead.
Or so it seemed. It came less than 10 minutes after Curtis Jones had been contentiously dismissed for an offence deemed to be serious foul play, lifting spirits amongst the away cohort. However in a flash the goal was chalked off for offside, allowing Spurs to take the lead moments later.
It had other major repercussions as with Liverpool chasing the game, Diogo Jota made two rash decisions to get himself sent off in the second half, further compounding the problems at hand. In the 96th minute the hosts then found their winner.

Sky Sports were forced to apologise as they too were in the dark about the ruling against Diaz's goal. Typically the broadcaster can access images used by officials with lines drawn on by hand to determine offsides, though they were not available.
And it turned out they did in fact not exist, as VAR Darren England and his assistant Dan Cook made a 'significant human error' in their roles as the duo failed to intervene and cancel out the on-field decision. PGMOL released an apology for this, meaning the goal should have stood.
