Saw the last half hour or so, lovely goal from Luka...apparently Pogba man of the match!

...Rashford seemed to struggle, doesn't look too happy with life...genuine tragedy if we let him move on!

It was a nice pass from Pogba & good finish from Lukaku, if only they were more consistant. I like Rashford & I hope we play him more. I don't know how we manage to turn many good players into average players.

Nothing wrong with Rashford last night at all, was very bright and played well and tested the keeper. First 90 mins for a while, so perhaps faded. He will be at Utd for a long time.

Ironic that since the EPL decided against bringing in VAR, there have been multiple incorrect result changing events that it would have corrected including the Shaw penalty and sending off yesterday

What would you talk about if all decisions were correct?

Something to do with the manager not trusting young good players I think. Same as when he was at Chelsea, the number of good players we let go who are now excellent players is depressing...

Just imagine if Adam was in charge of VAR, two pens a game minimum for Liverpool!

I think most people would agree that a version of VAR would help improve the game, but at the moment it’s a complete joke. Did you see that match in Germany where the ref was told to consult VAR after the half time whistle went and had to bring back one of the teams to take a penalty! Currently it causes more problems than it solves, and I wouldn’t want it to be implemented in its current guise. I would be shocked if there wasn’t a controversy with its use at the WC.

One of the issues I believe Utd & Liverpool have in common is that we don’t have big screens at the stadium - the crowd need to know what’s going on, the disruption will kill matches.

- though there generally have been times when, even to a neutral, LFC should had at least 2 penalties in a game (this season) but got none.

I may be in the minority here but I didn't see any problem with that at all. VAR, correctly, told the ref he had missed a blatant penalty. I believe that, at the time, the game was 0-0 or 1-0. Why would any team NOT want to have the chance of going getting a goal on the stroke of half time. To me, it doesn't matter how long it takes to get the decision; a correct decision is always better than an incorrect one.

I don't see this as being an issue at all, certainly at Anfield. The scoreboard can easily display "VAR Review" which is all that is needed - the fans aren't allowed to see the actual incident on a big screen inside the ground.

I agree the premise, but the implementation has been farcical. You can’t be bringing back players from the changing room. Half time was bad enough, but what if this happened at full time? They need a strict criteria and stick to it.

It’s not quick enough, and supporters do not get enough info. I’m happy for other leagues to crack on and hopefully when we do get VAR it won’t be a shambles like it is now.

Whole thing seems to be a massive problem really, they're already griping about what decisions it is used for, etc. But even a throw in can have big consequences if a goal is scored.

I’m sure I read this week that VAR will be shown on big screens at the World Cup? So I think they are ‘allowed’ to show fans.

I thought that, but it also says they won't be seeing it live I think, as presumably the crowd reaction will influence the referee
