Liverpool were left frustrated at a number of controversial decisions as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. 

The Reds were reduced to ten men when Curtis Jones was sent off for a high tackle in the first-half, with VAR intervening to prompt referee Simon Hooper to review the challenge and upgrade his initial yellow.

Shortly after, Luis Diaz thought he had put Jurgen Klopp’s side ahead only to be flagged offside by the assistant referee.

Replays showed that the Colombian was comfortably onside, but VAR Darren England failed to overturn the decision leaving the Reds fuming.

Spurs then took the lead through Son Heung-Min but were pegged back in the second half through Cody Gakpo.

Liverpool were then reduced to nine men when Diogo Jota was given a second yellow card, and Joel Matip’s late own goal gave the hosts all three points.

Bowen has scored five times in seven games so far this season

Klopp will have been frustrated by the match, and it now appears that he may have another reason to be angry.

As per Football Insider, West Ham United are keen to ensure Liverpool target Jarrod Bowen stays put on Merseyside.

The Englishman has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield for some time now, but the report claims that West Ham are keen to agree a new contract with him.

The report claims that talks between the two parties are already underway, with Bowen’s current contract set to expire in the summer of 2025.

Bowen, 26, joined the Hammers from Championship side Hull City back in 2020 for a fee of around £18 million.

He has since made 165 appearances for the London side across all competitions, scoring 45 goals and providing 32 assists.

Bowen’s impressive form earned him his first senior cap for England last summer, and he has now represented his country four times.
