JORDAN Henderson had a late winner chalked off in one of the most controversial decisions by VAR so far during a frenetic Merseyside derby.
It looked like the Liverpool captain had won it stoppage time after his low shot snuck past the desperate hands of Jordan Pickford with the game at 2-2.
But before the celebrations had even ended, the video assistant referee David Coote was looking at the positioning of Sadio Mane for the goal.
