Referee Anthony Taylor made the decision to award a penalty to Liverpool and send off Chelsea’s Reece James… without having a proper look at the monitor.

The referee reduced Chelsea to ten men, sending Reece James off for an alleged handball on the goal-line and awarding Liverpool a penalty, which Mohamed Salah scored.
Taylor appears to have made the game-changing decision without having a proper review of the VAR monitor…
