Carragher admits West Brom goal VAR disallowed should’ve stood vs Liverpool

Jamie Carragher has admitted that West Brom's disallowed goal against Liverpool should have stood on Sunday.

It comes after a manic match where the Reds came back to claim all three points in extraordinary circumstances.

Hal Robson-Kanu put the Baggies one up in the opening exchanges before Mohamed Salah equalised late on.

But there was controversy after Kyle Bartley scored from a corner to take West Brom back into the lead.

Though the defender was onside, VAR ruled that Matt Phillips obstructed Alisson’s view.

And with the last kick of the game, Trent Alexander-Arnold sent in a perfect delivery from a corner that was met by the Liverpool goalkeeper in brilliant fashion – securing the win to keep their Champions League dream alive.

But Sam Allardyce was disgusted by the decision to rule out Bartley's effort while Liverpool legend Carragher agreed with him.

"If down at Stockley Park they said that's right then that's nonsense," Allardyce said.

"If they say the referee or the linesman disallowed that goal it's a disgrace. There is no interference with the goalkeeper whatsoever.

"All those things people say they have to do to stop the goalkeeper saving it. If there was nobody there he still wouldn't have saved it. It's baffling."

And Carragher admitted that Bartley's goal should have stood – which would have had a huge effect on the top four race.

He said: "If that went against me I’d be very unhappy. There’s no doubt that there’s someone in front of the goalkeeper, but the header has gone wide.

"He is in front of the keeper no doubt, but I’d be really unhappy if that was against me, I really would be."

The win puts Liverpool's Champions League dream in their own hands, with Chelsea and Leicester set to take each other.

It means that one of the third and fourth placed teams will lose points while the Reds are just a point behind Thomas Tuchel's men with two games to go.
