The goal was ruled out by VAR, with the Premier League offering a weird explanation that said Firmino's "armpit" was offside.

On Liverpool's penchant for last-gasp winners - they have now scored five of those since the start of last season, more than any other team - Guardiola claimed it was not luck as "it happened in the last two seasons many, many times".
