Premier League giants Liverpool has confirmed plans to explore available options to get resolution into the weekend disallowed goal against Tottenham.
Luiz Diaz opener against Spurs was ruled offside only for PGMOL to apologize later on admitting that it was a human error in delivering judgement.
Through a statement, Liverpool noted that there was no rush in checking the offside allegation for the sake of transparency.

They continued by saying that “significant human error” is unacceptable and that something must be done to avoid such situations from reoccuring.
“We fully accept the pressures that match officials work under but these pressures are supposed to be alleviated, not exacerbated, by the existence and implementation of VAR.
It is therefore unsatisfactory that sufficient time was not afforded to allow the correct decision to be made and that there was no subsequent intervention.
That such failings have already been categorised as “significant human error” is also unacceptable. Any and all outcomes should be established only by the review and with full transparency.
This is vital for the reliability of future decision-making as it applies to all clubs with learnings being used to make improvements to processes in order to ensure this kind of situation cannot occur again.
In the meantime, we will explore the range of options available, given the clear need for escalation and resolution.” said Liverpool
