VAR Rules Out Che Adams' Goal Against Manchester United After His Finger Was Offside

To the surprise of many viewers watching at home, Southampton striker Che Adams had a goal ruled out by VAR in the 55th minute of tonight's Premier League clash against Manchester United.

The 24-year-old striker had the ball in the back of the net for Ralph Hasenhüttl's side after firing past David de Gea.

But after referee Mike Dean consulted the VAR, he overturned the goal because Adams was offside - and when I say offside, I mean a fingertip.

"There is no actual football fan wanting a goal ruled out for this offside" said Associated Press journalist Rob Harris. He might be right.

Manchester United capitalised after Southampton youngster Alex Jankewitz was sent off just 79 seconds into his first ever start for the club.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka opened the scoring in the 18th minute after great work from Luke Shaw down the left and it didn't take Marcus Rashford long to make it 2-0 before Edinson Cavani and an own goal from Jan Bednarek gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side a 4-0 at half-time.

United continued to run rampant in the second half, with Anthony Martial (x2), Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes and Daniel James making it 9-0 at full-time.
