No One Can Believe The VAR Lines On Manchester United's Offside Goal

No One Can Believe The VAR Lines On Manchester United's Offside Goal

The Red Devils found themselves 1-0 up through Romelu Lukaku and just before half-time thought they'd doubled their lead when Juan Mata scored.

However, after turning to the Video Assistant Referee (or VAR), after what felt like an eternity, it was declared that Mata was actually offside, and the goal was disallowed.

"I think I was hoping more than believing", said Rochdale hero Steven Davies of his last-gasp strike... when they bring on the big guns and Harry Kane scores, I've got to follow suit haven't I?!" Two minutes is a long time on the pitch but I think, overall, it will be good for football.

The system is being trialled in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup this season.

"If they have the VAR to help them make the right decisions, I think the referees will be happy with that", said Mourinho.

And Mata, writing in his weekly blog, noted that he was disappointed to celebrate scoring and then have his goal ruled out but did insist that he supported the technology's implementation.

"We have the Champions League now against a very good side". He has only five goals, none for United, in his past 41 games against England's current top six.

"I also believe the way the system was used at Huddersfield went against the original protocol, which was specifically to correct clear and obvious mistakes. I celebrated and it didn't count".

"The emotion is killed, the emotion in the stadium in the stands, for us managers in the dugout".

He wrote in the Daily Mirror: "I can guarantee he knows he's not playing well at the moment, but his pride will tell him it's not all his fault".

During his difficult patch Lukaku opted not to celebrate some of the goals he scored - apparently in frustration at the criticism aimed in his direction. An annual occurrence felt less a cause for celebration than a continuation of a personal habit.

But a Hawkeye statement read: "A technical error led to an incorrect graphic being provided by Hawkeye to BT Sport on Saturday. In six matches against Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham, he has mustered four shots on target".

It remains uncertain if Pogba will be fit to face Sevilla in their Champions League last-16 first leg on Wednesday.
