ESPN journalist comes up with ridiculous 'LiVARpool' claim, gets strong backlash from fans
- ESPN have come up with a table that showed what PL standings would look like if VAR was not there.
- Liverpool would have been top of the league still but the gap between us and City would've been shorter.
- ESPN journalist Alex Shaw saw this as another proof we are 'LiVARpool'.
- Fans slammed him on social media.
When opposition fans talk about 'LiVARpool', it's ridiculous but easy to understand. However, when a journalist, supposed to be objective, says the same, that raises eyebrows.
Recently, ESPN have come up with an 'analysis' of what the Premier League table would look like without VAR. It appears the Reds would still be top of the league at 56 points but Man City would be the runners-up at 49 points.
That was enough for ESPN journalist Alex Shaw to tweet: "It really is Livarpool. There would be a title race this season without VAR."
Even non-Liverpool fans slammed Alex on Twitter for saying nonsense.
