After VAR Cancelled United's First Half Goal, See How Their Coaches Reacted That Caught Attention

In the first half of Manchester United's Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane today, there was some controversy. The Reds came into this match having suffered a humiliating 6-1 defeat in the first leg at Old Trafford. A victory would also solidify their position in the race for automatic champions league qualification next season. United got off to a flying start, taking the lead early in the first half thanks to a fantastic strike from Edinson Cavanni, who was put through on goal by Paul Pogba. Surprisingly, after consulting the Video Assistant Referee, the goal was chalked off by the referee.

The reason for the goal's disallowance was extremely contentious, and it created a minor saga in the build-up. Son was holding Scott Mactominay's hand while he was carrying the ball. In an attempt to free himself, he brushed off his hand and ran away with the ball, but in the process, he hit Son in the face. The goal was chalked off because Son fell down in a theatrical manner. The incident is documented in photographs below.

United's coaches were visibly upset, and Ole Gunner Solskjaer was visibly enraged, but it was assistant manager Mike Phelan's reaction that drew the most attention. He leaned back in his chair, as if he couldn't believe what he'd just seen, as if to say, "The Premier League is Dead." A photograph of him is included below.

That reaction drew the attention of the fans, who discussed it extensively on social media. A few of them are listed below.

If your watched the game, do you believe that the goal was rightly disallowed or not?
