Edinson Cavani's Goal Against Spurs Ruled Out Due To Scott McTominay 'Foul' On Heung-Min Son

Edinson Cavani's opener against Spurs was ruled out after Scott McTominay was deemed to have fouled Heung-Min Son in the build-up to the goal.

The Uruguayan latched onto a brilliant Paul Pogba pass and slotted past Hugo Lloris before celebrating with his Manchester United teammates.

However, the strike was chalked off after a lengthy VAR review that saw referee Chris Kavanagh head over to the screen and make his decision.

While in possession in the middle of the pitch, McTominay's hand flicked out at Son's face and though the contact was seen as accidental and didn't result in a second yellow card, the goal was controversially ruled out.

PGMOL say that the goal was overturned due as the action "wasn't part of McTominay's natural running movement and was careless."

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fuming on the United bench, while fans were in disbelief over the call made:

Son, having been lay on the turf minutes prior, then opened the scoring after a mistake from Victor Lindelof allowed Lucas Moura in behind to cross for the South Korean at the far post.

Speaking at half-time on Sky Sports, former United skipper Roy Keane branded Son's antics "embarrassing" and said, "If that's a foul we should all go home".
