Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fired back against the arguments, made by Frank Lampard that Manchester United ,has benefited from favourable VAR calls.

Prior to Sunday’s semi-final meeting ,of the FA Cup, Chelsea head coach Lampard said United had “got a few in their favour” when it came to decision making at the latest Premier League games. Tottenham boss Mourinho also stated that his former club was “lucky.” Frank Lampard also said that VAR has come in to try and change, and not just favouring teams, but just to get the right decision. But according to him, there is always a human element to VAR, still, of course, clearly the referees have to make a decision. And some of the VAR decisions have taken in favour of the side of Solskjaer, reckons Lampard.

United were rewarded 13 penalties in 2019-20, one short of a record for a Premier League season, the latest of which came in a 3-0 victory at Aston Villa for a controversial foul on Bruno Fernandes. In Thursday’s 2-0 win at Crystal Palace witnessed Victor Lindelof got away in the penalty area with a tackle against Wilfried Zaha, whereas Jordan Ayew had a disallowed goal for a slight offside. However, Solskjaer denied the argument that his side was favoured through VAR.

“I can sit here for hours now and try to talk about this. It looks like there’s a narrative; it looks like people want to influence whoever’s making the decisions. I hear people talking about luck, that we’ve been lucky more than unlucky. If you look at the factual decisions, I don’t want to sound like a certain manager talking about facts, but if you’re offside, you’re offside. That’s clear. Talking about lucky, the penalty we got against Tottenham in the last minute that was taken away from us, that might be two points for us,” said Solskjaer.

Solskjaer, believed United, were themselves the sufferers of controversial decisions, including a late tackle on Mason Greenwood by Oriol Romeu, which went unchecked in the 2-2 draw with Southampton. He also mentioned some instances of actions that may have affected them.

“Talking about lucky, the penalty we got against Tottenham in the last minute that was taken away from us, that might be two points for us. Talking about the red card, that Romeu should have had against us when he got Mason Greenwood almost crippled, that should’ve been a red card. Maybe that would’ve helped us. Talking about Mark Noble when he should have been sent off against us ,when we lost at West Ham [in September],” he added.

The manager of the Red Devils claimed it should be him who should complain, about some of the on-field referees’ decisions that were taken against them. He just feels people are going to chat so he’s not at all worried with any of that because ,he doesn’t want to trouble himself worrying of any of these.
