Liverpool, drawn 2-2, is demanding urgent clarification on PGMOL’s handling of the incident. High-ranking sources at Anfield claim the Premier League takes care of their rundown of events – which they also claim are constantly changing – from speaking to the club.
Liverpool insiders say they were told on Saturday that Cotet was “too distracted” by the offside verification and thus did not look at a potential Beckford red card.
PGMOL President Mike Riley then spoke to the club on Sunday, claiming that the match officials reviewed the challenge and deemed it not red.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson then saw the late-winning goal ruled out for offside, after Sadio Mane was ruled out after Thiago Alcantara’s pass.
PGMOL says they are bound by the camera technology available to them. The current setting is running at 50 frames per second, which means taking a photo every 0.02 seconds.
This is not advanced enough to determine the exact moment at which the through ball is played. This means that clubs must accept the margin of error, and given that Mane has been sentenced to offside by millimeters, this could lead to controversial decisions.
