Breaking News ! Former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher has waded into the controversial penalty incident in Liverpool's draw with Brighton. The Reds were minutes away from a slender victory at the Amex only to concede a stoppage time spot-kick. Andy Robertson was adjudged to have tripped Danny Welbeck in the box in a decision that was awarded only after VAR intervened. Referee Stuart Attwell did not originally award a spot-kick following the incident, but was advised to watch the pitch-side monitor by VAR officials.

"So what VAR have done is invite the referee to see what they've seen and make his own judgement - I think that's the good thing about VAR now."
