“But for some reason I think the usage has been watered down. I don’t see it working as effectively as it was in the early stages and I have a feeling that this has definitely influenced us in the last few games, especially when we look at this. ” Ryan Fraser’s incident against Manchester City, you think VAR has to come in.

“When I look back on what happened in Liverpool, could Liverpool have had an impact? [referee] Mike Dean, probably not about Isaac Hayden’s head injury, but certainly more communication needs to be done between the fourth official and the referee, who shared my opinion, who was clear that the game should have been abandoned. “
