Is Manchester United 3 - 2 Win Against Brighton A Deserved Victory?

Brighton was a better side today, they had struck the woodwork of Manchester United’s goal five times in this game.

The win against Brighton was a lucky win. Manchester United performed poorly, they were loosing possession always and were making alot of errors and giving out free spaces for the Brighton midfielders.

Just moments before the final whistle, Brighton thought they had secured a point, scoring a 95th-minute equaliser through Solly March, but the point was taken away from them seconds later when Maupay gave away a penalty.

The referee had already blown the full-time whistle and VAR check was still in progress for a penalty after Neal Maupay handled the ball inside the 18 yard box.

After the lengthy VAR check, the referee Chris Kavanagh then over-turned his original decision of ending the game and awarded a penalty leading to Bruno Fernandes taking and scoring a dramatic spot-kick in the 100th minute.

According to the International Football Association Board (IFAB), there are no time restrictions for reviewing incidents.

Games are allowed to be restarted following a VAR check, despite the referee having already blown his whistle to signal the end of the game.

"There is no time limit for the review process as accuracy is more important than speed," the IFAB states.

So, with the Rules of IFAB, Manchester United Win Against Brighton was a deserved one.
