Newcastle striker Wilson: VAR embarrassing and killing the game

Newcastle United striker Callum Wilson is furious being denied a goal in yesterday's 1-1 draw at Liverpool.

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring at Anfield in the opening minutes of the contest, before the home side conceded a late equaliser from Arsenal loanee Joe Willock.

Newcastle had the ball in the net moments before when Wilson's effort trickled over the line, before VAR intervened.

Wilson posted on social media a message praising the team for securing a draw against Liverpool, but did not hide his frustration with the decision to disallow his goal.

The Newcastle striker wrote: "Hard fought point today!!

"Some of these new rules though. Embarrassing and killing the game."
