The Premier League has defined why Trent Alexander-Arnold was not penalised for handball in Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Man Metropolis on Sunday.
With Man Metropolis on the assault, the ball appeared to have hit the hand of right-back, Alexander-Arnold within the Liverpool space.
The incident led to very large protests from Metropolis, notably Sergio Aguero.
Nevertheless, the Referee waved on and Liverpool broke down the opposite finish, resulting in Fabinho’s opening objective.
VAR checked the handball determination and agreed with the referee, permitting the Brazilian’s objective to face.
The Premier League has now launched a statement over the controversy saying, “The VAR checked the penalty appeal for handball against Trent Alexander-Arnold and confirmed the on-field decision that it did not meet the considerations for a deliberate handball.”
