The 29-year-old was booked after colliding with Marcus Rashford - although it looked worse than it actually was thanks to a slip.
Moments later, he was heard venting his frustrations about an offside decision to the linesman and it was picked up by Sky Sports cameras.
"It's because you're fu**ing waiting for VAR all the time use the fu**ing flag you've been given," he begun.

"Use it mate, well done!" he then sarcastically finished with.
VAR has been a massive talking point of this Premier League season and many believe it is having a negative impact on the game.
Ayling's reaction has gone viral and fans were loving his 'sh*thouse' behaviour.

Despite the first game between these two sides in December ending 6-2, it was a rather drab affair at Elland Road which ended 0-0.
Leeds were keen to not repeat the mistakes they made at Old Trafford and did a fine job defensively, managing to nullify Bruno Fernandes completely.
Manager Marcelo Bielsa said per Leeds Live: "It was a very demanding game for us. For the game not to become unbalanced the team made a massive effort.
"This effort allowed the game not to become unbalanced for us. The game for them came more naturally for them.
"But even if they predominantly dominated, we managed that the chances on goal were similar, even if they did have more of the ball to attack and they had a lot more attacks than we did.
But I insist I value a lot everything that we did so the game would not become unbalanced."
