Why is the ‘offside’ Rashford still recognized as a goal?

Rashford’s goal helped Man Utd beat Liverpool 2-1 in the third round of the Premier League, to rise to 14th.

They will host Southampton in the fourth round, 27/8.

Under the new Premier League rules, attacking players benefit in situations that are too difficult to determine offside, such as Marcus Rashford’s situation in a Liverpool match.

The Premier League adds an “error” clause to offside test VAR situations from the 2021-2022 season.

If standing no more than 5 cm below the defensive player, the attacking player will not be considered offside.

5 cm is the width of the horizontal line on the screen that VAR uses to determine whether a player is offside or not.
