I know hands and arms don't count for the attacker but I didn't think that applied for defenders? I stand corrected if I'm wrong

It does. No player is allowed to use their arms so they don't count for either player in offside decisions.

Why would it only count for one player and not the other?

I thought they would give advantage to the attacker

TBH Chelsea had 2 shots on target all game, their goal and Abraham when through on goal. They weren't going to get anything out of the game if they couldn't hit the target

An away win at Chelsea is a good result.

The issue with VAR for me is the TV technology is not up to the job of ascertaining whether someone is offside, based on the frame rate. Some people cleverer than I have worked out that there's a potential for 20cm margin of error - especially considering the speed of someone like, say, Sterling or Son. These close calls on the VAR could look very different using one frame before or after and how can you tell the EXACT point the ball leaves the foot of the player playing the through ball?

Could it be that referees can go check the screen in these "within the margin of error" calls? What happened with the close offsides during the World Cup last summer?

All depends what FPS the cameras they have access to are. I read they have higher ones than TV.

Pedantic mode on but ... a player is deemed to have passed the ball at the moment he touches the ball not when he is no longer in contact with the he ball.

And regardless of how close it is, the VAR decision will still be far more accurate than relying on the eyesight of one person who is potentially 70+ yards away.

The margin for error is largely irrelevant since all the VAR calls will be subject to the same margin for error and, ergo, consistent which is one of the goals for bringing it in.

That Abraham chance was another example of why I am so much more confident with Adrian as backup keeper rather than Migs/Karius

With DRS in cricket there is the allowance for error in umpires call. There probably needs to be in football too, where the attacker gets the benefit of the doubt.

Got away with that one a bit ( though could easily have won by 3 ) but 3 points is 3 points

Matip is not playing tomorrow either

And, apparently, Klopp will decide tomorrow whether Alisson starts

Another half lack lustre 2nd half performance that still managed to produce chances.

LOL at MoTD's analysis of both the penalty ( which was clear from row 64 of the Kop ) and Choudhury's 'tired' ( even though he has only been on the pitch 5 mins ) tackle on Salah.

We did more than enough to win and shouldn’t have needed the penalty

All in all it was an excellent weekend.
