Manchester United Fans Are Fuming At VAR, Think Victor Lindelof Was Fouled For West Brom's Goal
| Last updated
Manchester United fans are furious because they reckon Victor Lindelof was fouled for West Brom's goal.
The hosts wasted no time in opening the scoring as Mbaye Diagne headed home from close range in the second minute.
Diagne "mauled" Lindelof to connect with Conor Gallagher's cross, leaving the Swedish defender and Harry Maguire asking for a foul.
West Brom are off to a flying start! :airplane_departure:
Diagne puts the Baggies ahead within the first 90 seconds. In the words of @gnev2 he 'mauls' Lindelof!

VAR failed to intervene as West Brom's early goal stood to the dismay of United supporters on social media.
They are adamant that there was an infringement on Lindelof during the goal while lamenting the lack of video review.
One Twitter user wrote: "VAR working well as usual."
A second tweeted: "Agree that's a foul but he's got to do better honestly."
A third added: "I don't mind goals like this standing IF all goals like this stand. Maguire va Burnley, Martial vs Sheffield Utd."
How come VAR didn't review that goal. It was a clear foul on Lindelof.- Aboh Ferdi (@boysabi) February 14, 2021
Weak from Lindelof but when the attacker has his hand on his face covering his eyes surely VAR has to intervene? #MUFC pic.twitter.com/DJxiQuTOj2

Lindelof literally has his face completely covered by the attackers hand - no foul.

Maguire and Lindelof are always crying for a foul instead of clearing the ball pisses me off pic.twitter.com/dWg2EG4kvQ

Think Lindelof has to be stronger. But unsure how this wasn't given as a foul. pic.twitter.com/3swCPfgYgl

Could have been a foul on Lindelof for the goal but let's be honest he's got to be way stronger than that anyway

West Brom led until Bruno Fernandes levelled with a terrific strike.
