Manchester United fan and YouTuber Mark Goldbridge has explained why Rasmus Hojlund’s goal should have counted against Brighton and Hove Albion.
After the international break, the Premier League has returned with a full set of fixtures.
Meanwhile, the Seagulls, who have been impressing many people were looking to continue their fine form.
Despite United having more of the ball and creating more chances, Brighton went ahead after 20 minutes thanks to former United striker Danny Welbeck.
The striker strolled into the United box unmarked and slotted home a cross by Simon Adingra.
Before half time, Hojlund, who was making his full United debut managed to poke home a cross from Marcus Rashford to level things up.

However, the goal was ruled out by VAR after it appeared the ball was out of play when Rashford crossed it in.
Now, Goldbridge has voiced his opinion about the controversial VAR call.
On social media, he wrote: “Tell me they haven't guessed.... should have been given. If you're unsure the onus should go with the attackign side.”

To make things worse for United, they found themselves 2-0 down after Pascal Gross scored the visitors’ second.
Gross got away from Lisandro Martinez before firing a brilliant effort into the bottom corner.
As things stand, United will be in 11th place after collecting just six points from their opening five Premier League matches.
