VAR Scores A Hat-Trick For Manchester United As Chelsea Fans Outraged With Decisions

VAR Scores A Hat-Trick For Manchester United As Chelsea Fans Outraged With Decisions

Outraged Chelsea fans have slammed VAR for the rulings made on three important moments in the Blues' defeat to Manchester United.

Goals from Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire sealed an important 2-0 victory for United at Stamford Bridge on Monday evening.

But the match has been marred in controversy due to VAR's decisions in both the first half and second half.

United skipper Maguire escaped a red card for what appeared to be a kick on Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi.

And VAR ruled in favour of the 26-year-old United defender, which was met with a furious reaction from fans.

With United leading 1-0 going into half-time, Chelsea thought they had found an equaliser through Kurt Zouma early into the second half.

However, VAR was called into action and ruled that Cesar Azpilicueta pushed Brandon Williams at the near post before Zouma found the back of the net.

Fans vented their frustration on social media after spotting that Fred had pushed the Chelsea captain during the corner.

Maguire doubled United's lead after smashing home a header from a brilliant Bruno Fernandes corner.

Chelsea thought they had found a lifeline when Olivier Giroud came charging into the box and smashed in a header past David de Gea.

But VAR found that the former Arsenal striker's foot was in an offside position.

United have boosted their Champions League hopes with their win and move three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
