Paul Robinson said he was shocked that Liverpool’s opening goal stood on Monday night.
Leeds suffered an embarrassing 6-1 defeat to The Reds at Elland Road, further denting their survival hopes. Cody Gakpo scored from the handball incident, with VAR failing to rule out the goal. Mohamed Salah made it 2-0 before half time.
Liverpool scored three goals in over 20 minutes after half time, with Darwin Nunez scoring the sixth goal late on. Paul Robinson believes the goal should not have stood:
“It was a clear handball and when you watch it it’s a clear handball. Trent puts his arm out and hits it forward,” he told BBC.
“It’s a great one-two round Firpo, which is an area they’ve targeted tonight.
“But it’s a clear handball.”
The defeat to Liverpool means that Leeds sit in 16th place just two points above the relegation zone.
