Breaking News: Peter Drury explains what the VAR official said after Jeremy Doku’s tackle in the final minute against Liverpool.

Peter Drury has now revealed what the VAR officials said after Manchester City’s Jeremy Doku tackled Liverpool’s Alexis MacAllister late today.

Although the game ended in a draw, Mac Allister and his teammates appeared irritated that they were not given a late penalty for a high challenge.

Jeremy Doku appeared to make contact with the ball first, before placing his boot on the Liverpool midfielder’s chest.

And, despite reviewing the incident, VAR determined that there was insufficient evidence to overturn the on-field decision of no penalty.

Of course, this is bound to be a hot topic in the aftermath of the game, especially with such close margins.

And if Liverpool had been awarded a late penalty, they could have jumped ahead in the title race.

However, while commentating on the game for Sky Sports, Peter Drury shared what the VAR officials said when Liverpool demanded a penalty.

Peter Drury explains what VAR officials said when Liverpool demanded a penalty late on.
Drury simply relayed the VAR’s message, implying there was no reason to overturn the close call.

He went on to say: “Word from the VAR, Doku played it in a reasonable position.”

It will be interesting to hear what Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola thought about the call.

It would be surprising if Pep believed a penalty should have been awarded, but Klopp may have a different opinion.

Although the Liverpool manager would have preferred Luis Diaz to settle the game, he may feel his team was shortchanged late on.

It’s a contentious issue, and the debate will most likely continue in the coming days.

While watching the events unfold live, Peter Drury and Gary Neville appeared to believe City was in danger, but VAR ultimately determined there was no foul play on the Liverpool midfielder.

Definitely one that will divide opinion, and it will most likely be a fairly even split depending on which side of the title race fans support.

That being said, Mike Dean noticed something extraordinary about Darwin Nunez’s performance during today’s game.
