Liverpool`s disallowed goal after 76 seconds against Stoke City has been the subject of much debate and, having reviewed the incident, the panel believe that referee Andre Marriner was justified in his decision.

Fernando Torres was shown to be in an offside position. As he was directly in the path of the flight of the ball and Stoke keeper Thomas Sorensen – in the referee`s opinion – he could deceive or distract. In accordance with Law 11, that means he causes an offside offence by interfering with an opponent.
