Liverpool have continued their winning run after they beat a spirited Norwich City side at Carrow Road on Saturday evening. The win took them even closer to their first-ever Premier League title.
Though the Reds were the team who were in the possession of the ball more often(as per BBC Sport), it took them 78 minuted to break the deadlock when substitute Sadio Mane struck a winner that saw Liverpool home.
His brilliant strike made sure Jurgen Klopp’s side bagged 25 wins in 26 Premier League games this season.
However, Liverpool fans were left disappointed when referee Stuart Attwell and his team did not award Liverpool a penalty for a foul on Virgil van Dijk.
Here is how some of the club’s supporters reacted to the footage posted on social media of the incident.
The ref did his best to drop us points. Even a clean and clear Mane's goal was called into VAR.

Liverpool certainly had a case regarding that particular incident and it’s no wonder the fans were left angry by the decision to overlook the actions of both Lukas Rupp and Teemu Pukki
