Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has had his say on the disallowed goal against Liverpool during their Premier League clash on Sunday.
Lampard talked about the disallowed goal from his skipper Cesar Azpilicueta during his post-match press conference after the Liverpool game which ended in a 2-1 home defeat for his team.
Cesar Azpilicueta scored what he taught was the equalizer in the first half of the game before the goal was disallowed by VAR after young midfielder Mason Mount was marginally flagged for offside.
At that point, Liverpool were leading 1-0 courtesy an indirect freekick from Trent Alexandre-Arnold.
On the disallowed goal, Frank Lampard told reporters that VAR was right to disallow the goal as Mason Mount was marginally offside.
Shortly after Cesar Azpilicueta’s goal was disallowed, Liverpool doubled their lead through a Roberto Firmino header off another indirect freekick taken by left-back Andy Robertson.
Liverpool went into the halftime interval with a 2-0 lead.
Chelsea were more of a threat to the Liverpool rearguard in the second half but didn’t find the back of the net until the final 20 minutes of the game.
French midfielder N’Golo Kante halved the deficit for the hosts but they could not find the second goal to earn a point from the game.
