Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has astonishingly revealed that the stoppage-time in the first-half against West Brom was cut down from 10 to four minutes for TV purposes.

Liverpool were defeated 3-2 by the Baggies in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday night at Anfield but the use of VAR, which paused the game for lengthy periods of time, was the biggest controversy of the evening.

Their clash was the only game selected from this weekend's FA Cup fixtures to use VAR to overturn decisions and it was called upon three times just in the first half alone.

Saturday's referee Craig Pawson consulted VAR on eight separate occasions during the night. 

And speaking ahead of Liverpool's Premier League clash with Huddersfield on Tuesday night, Klopp slammed how little time had been added on at the end of the first period as his side looked for a way back into the game. 

'What I heard was that the actual extra-time in the first half should have been 10 minutes and it was only four minutes,' Klopp replied when asked about what needs improving with VAR.

'I heard the television said no longer than four minutes. Of course that's not possible, how you can cut match time only because you have something else to broadcast. 

'I don't know what's on afterwards, maybe the news or something. That's how it is. It was 10 minutes and you need to play 10 minutes longer.'

Klopp's men will be desperate to bounce back from their defeat to West Brom with victory over Huddersfield in the Premier League on Tuesday at the John Smith's Stadium.

The Reds currently sit fourth in the Premier League, two points above Tottenham and five above Arsenal, as they look to secure Champions League football come the end of the season.
