The first back in August saw Wolves denied by VAR after a handball by that man Boly.

The Premier League needs video assistant referees now, Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez said after Wolves scored a dramatic stoppage-time winner against his 10 - man side. Matt Doherty headed home the rebound after Diogo Jota's shot was pushed into his path in the 95th minute.

"I thought Jonny Evans was immense," said Rodgers afterwards. "He showed his big-game qualities. He is a big player for us. He has been absolutely amazing."

Nuno Espirito Santo: "The law is the law. I am still positive. I am upset, of course, because Molineux was buzzing and then suddenly you are down. It becomes an issue to regain the concentration. It is very hard for players to sustain that level of concentration and when they see the images it is even worse.

"The players don't understand because they don't see, they don't have the lines. They celebrate. When you have something and someone takes it away, they don't like it. A goal is something that is so hard to achieve.

"You can be on both sides of the decision. It is not about Wolves, it is about the game, it is about football. It is about what we had and what we have. It is about where we want to go and what kind of game we want to see, how the fans are going to react to it. It is all of these things.

"I want things to improve. I am not a specialist on referees. I respect them a lot. We are not judging the work of the referees here. I am frustrated with the situation and all that is involved. We should not be sitting here and talking about this. So let's hope things improve."

Brendan Rodgers: "It was his little toe that was offside wasn't it? We have seen it so many times. Nuno is obviously celebrating the goal. As the manager that's on the other side of it, when you get it, it's brilliant.

"You hope don't you? That's what it gives you now. There's a disappointment when the goal goes in but once you see [referee] Mike (Dean) doing that rectangular action that he makes, of course you are happy. It has worked for and against us this season. You just have to take it.
