Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, criticized referee Michael Oliver's judgment call during their 3-2 loss to Arsenal on Sunday.



When Gabriel Jesus was lightly touched by Thiago Alcantara in the 18-yard box, the Reds were awarded a questionable penalty, which resulted in the Gunners' third goal.

When Gabriel, a defender, was struck on the arm by Diogo Jota's cross, Klopp's team was also denied a penalty.

Later, it was discovered that if Bukayo Saka had not been in a camera blind spot when he received the ball from Ben White during the build-up, Gabriel Martinelli's opening goal, which came after just 58 seconds, might have been disallowed.

Due to Saka's position, VAR was unable to draw the lines necessary to determine whether he was onside.
Ahead of Liverpool's Champions League match against Rangers on Wednesday, Klopp said in a press conference: "On Sky Sports' Ref Watch, when Mr. Dermot [Gallagher] twice says the decision by the best English referee, Michael Oliver, was wrong, the TV ref usually always says exactly what the ref decided was right."
“Before the season, we had a big meeting with the refs and they said no soft penalties anymore. Then we've already seen this season what kind of situations we have for handball, and there were penalties in exactly the same situations, but not in this game.
We conceded silly goals, especially the second one in the first half, but between the first and second goal, we played against a team in form in the league and had a really good game.
Then I get the information only later after that, because nobody could show that before, Saka was probably offside around the first goal, and all of a sudden, a bad defending situation becomes a good defending situation because he would have been offside, just the assistant didn’t see it or thought VAR would check it, and VAR had no camera.
“We are responsible for the situation around the penalty situation. We should have cleared it before, but there was still no penalty. We are responsible for going through a set-piece and conceding a counter-attack, of course, and we cannot be responsible for the first goal because it was good defending and it was offside.
“It’s really tricky and yes, we can play better, but we didn’t go to Arsenal to show how good we are, we went to Arsenal to win the game."
“We lost it in the way we lost it, so now it’s difficult to judge, so what did we miss in this specific game?" Just the right ref decisions would have been helpful, to be 100 per cent honest, then we could judge the game. Then, if we win that game, to the outside world, our problems are completely sorted. We know it’s not like that. We lost the game and three players, and that’s the exact opposite of what should have happened. "
