Jamie Carragher blasts VAR 'mistake' as Coutinho has screamer disallowed against Man City

2 mins read


Jamie Carragher questioned why Philippe Coutinho had a goal disallowed in Aston Villa’s 1-1 draw with Manchester City. 

Ollie Watkins was adjudged to have been offside before Coutinho slammed home – but the England forward was later shown to be onside. The goal stood with no VAR intervention. 

Commentating for Sky Sports, Carragher said: “It wasn’t an issue I thought Ollie Watkins… but you just see Philippe Coutinho at the bottom  of the screen that pass there – he’s not offside. Man City have got away with one. 

“Then the linesman thinks he’s come back from an onside there again. Is it because the whistle’s been blown beforehand [so VAR can’t intervene]? That is a major mix-up between these officials, it really is. That is a mistake. Wouldn’t want to be the man who tells Steven Gerrard after the game.”
