(Video) Matip gets away with horror own goal – linesman calls offside

Old Trafford thought Manchester United took the lead when Joel Matip put the ball into his own net, only for the linesman to call Chris Smalling offside following a free-kick into the Liverpool box.

Smalling crossed the ball in after a set-piece was delivered across the pitch, and Matic put the ball past Alisson into the right corner.

Unfortunately, the defender got away with it, saved by the offside flag.

We can have no complaints about the decision – but it was a moment that saw me jump around the place like a complete lunatic.

The scoreline remains 0-0 with 90 minutes played (2 added on)…
