The club is understood to have contacted Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) board for clarification.

The incident happened just before Andy Robertson scored an opener for the Reds, who subsequently scored a seal win 2-0 with a late goal from Divock Origi.

Everton were saddened when referee Stuart Attwell denied his penalty challenge.

Their irritation only increased when VAR Darren England refused to intervene in the incident as he felt an on-pitch check was unnecessary.

Everton want to know why the VAR check was so quick and didn’t warrant a game stoppage.

After the match Toffees boss Frank Lampard said he felt if Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah had faced the same challenge a penalty would have been imposed.

He added: “It was a penalty, you don’t get that at Anfield.

“If that was Mohamed Salah at the Kop end I think [the referee] There is. It was a foul on Anthony.”
