“I figure he can’t see Grealish as a result of the three Prods players and thinks Haaland has recently placed it into space. Then clearly he can and acknowledges he has f**ked up.”

Talking on Sky Sports, Gary Neville said after the episode: ” Haaland has lost his head. But I think that’s partly due to the fact that I’ve had a pretty bad game in front of goal.

“City have surrendered nine objectives in four games. That will be a greater worry toward the end than the refereeing blunder when Grealish was through.”

Previous City player Micah Richards added: ” The official had a splendid game today until this second. It’s not clear to me.

“The official puts the whistle to his mouth, he waves the play on to play advantage. Haaland passes the ball through to Jack Grealish, who clearly is onside, and then he stops the play, which I don’t quite understand.

When Gakpo lashed into the bottom corner, they appeared to be given a lifeline, but after a lengthy VAR consultation, referee John Brooks determined that the goal could not stand. Although the former PSV Eindhoven forward remained with the club throughout the transfer, supporters were perplexed by the final decision.

Ezra Konsa deflected Luis Diaz’s header back across goal, landing at the feet of Virgil van Dijk, who was standing beyond the last line of defense but appeared to be played onside before crossing back in for the goal, but Brooks determined that the Villa defender’s contribution was not intentional.

Konsa’s refusal to play the ball, according to a Premier League statement, was critical. “The VAR recommended a review,” according to the document. “And referee John Brooks determined that it was an unintentional deflection off Ezri Konsa, not a deliberate play.”

Despite Firmino’s late equalizer in his last appearance at Anfield, the result was a bitter blow for the Reds, who will almost certainly be forced to compete in Europe’s second-tier club competition next season.

After receiving a touchline ban for his comments about referee Paul Tierney last month, Klopp was forced to watch the game from the stands. Despite the controversy surrounding Villa’s disallowed goal and Tyrone Mings’ potential red card, the German chose to ignore the issues following the game.

Klopp, on the other hand, chastised Villa, who are also vying for a European spot under Unai Emery, for wasting time. “Wow,” Klopp said of the wasted time.

During the game against Sevilla, we saw the ball boys leave the country.” How long did Roma and Leverkusen have possession of the ball? It is something that everyone does. This has happened in several games this season. Nothing to do with today’s outcome.”

The Reds’ season will come to an end next weekend when they travel to relegated Southampton, with Klopp admitting that his team has been far too poor for far too long to merit fourth place.
