The Professional Game Match Officials Board have now informed journalists exactly why Heung-min Son’s goal against Liverpool last night was ruled onside.

Liverpool had dominated proceedings from the first whistle at Anfield, eventually taking the lead thanks to a deflected shot from Salah that looped up and left Lloris with no chance.

However, despite Liverpool knocking on the door of a second goal, Spurs managed to form one key break away through Giovani Lo Celso, with the Argentine threading a perfect ball through to Heung-min Son.

Of course, the South Korea collected it and slotted past Alisson with ease, but replays appeared to hint that the Spurs man could have been offside.

Despite this, VAR reviewed and the goal was given, with the PGMOL now revealing exactly why, as quoted by Kevin Palmer.

They claimed that the left foot of Rhys Williams played Son onside and that no 3D lines were required to come to this conclusion, despite what was seen on the TV coverage.

The PGMOL stated: “The calibrated line was drawn from Liverpool defender Rhys Williams furthest point forward, his left foot, which showed that Son was behind him when the ball was played. 3D lines were not required.”
