FANS were left fuming after VAR failed to intervene and disallow Bruno Fernandes’ goal for Manchester United.
Not one but TWO incidents were up for debate – but not according to the match officials.
Firstly, the ball appeared to be out of play in the build-up to United’s second goal during their 3-0 victory over Brighton.
Mason Greenwood controlled it out on the touchline, but images and replays seemed to show the ball was over the touchline.
And then moments later Luke Shaw was fed a pass down the left into the box which he crossed through the box leading to the Portuguese star eventually getting it and finishing.
But the left-back’s leg looked to be clearly offside – but still those managing VAR failed to intervene.
One said: “Ball was out of play by Greenwood, VAR not checking the possible offside. I’m telling you it happens only for these lot.”
Another said: “Shaw offside in the build up not checked, ball out of play from Greenwood. VAR no checks. goal shouldn’t count. so currupt. f**k united.”
A fellow viewer said: “Jammy b******s Shaw offside and greenwood had the ball out of play f***ing United.”
Another tweeted: “VAR officials claim 30 seconds are too long to correct the assistants mistake in the buildup of MU’s goal (the ball have gone out of play with Greenwood retrieving it as it bounced over the line). Let’s remember that the next time VAR claims 50 seconds are fine when it’s LFC.”
And another said: “Ball was out of play before Greenwood goal.. VAR didn’t check Goals stands.
“Shaw was offside but VAR didn’t even bother to check it too or show fans how he was inside. Goal stands.
The ex-Liverpool and Tottenham star said: “VAR got it right there allowing the second goal because it was 32 seconds from when the ball actually went out of play.”
