The Magpies scored twice in stoppage time in their trip to Anfield, but only one counted thanks to intervention from VAR.

Newcastle faced a daunting trip to Anfield for Saturday's early Premier League kick off, with the Magpies going in search of crucial points amid a heated relegation battle. Not many expected Steve Bruce's side to come away with something from the Liverpool clash, but that is just what they did, pulling off a dramatic 1-1 draw in Merseyside.

Jurgen Klopp's men broke the deadlock early on in this tie, with Mohamed Salah scoring an exquisite goal after only three minutes of play. From then on, the Reds appeared destined to win, but despite dominating possession and creating several chances, Liverpool were unable to double their lead.

Things remained like this until stoppage time, with the visitors launching a late attempt to salvage a point, and with their final action of the game, they pulled off an equalizer. Arsenal loanee Joe Willock came to the rescue, scoring in the fifth minute of added time to hand Salah and Co. a huge sucker punch in their top-four race.  

Despite the brilliant match and late drama, many were enraged even after the final whistle. This was due to VAR – as usual – with the video assistant referee ruling out a Newcastle goal which appeared clean in the eyes of the viewers.

The Magpies scored twice in stoppage time, with Calum Wilson netting past Alisson prior to Wilson's goal. The English striker broke through on goal, with his saved attempt ricocheting off of him and creeping into the back of the net. VAR checked this goal and deemed it to be handball as it struck him in the arm, but many felt this decision was wrong as the player's limb was tucked in.

This sparked controversy on social media, with fans and pundits alike voicing their criticism of this decision and the overall implementation of VAR. Check out the best tweets below.
