The Premier League returned with some wonderful football matches and so did VAR and it's controversial decisions.
One of the games today saw Aston Villa surprisingly beat Man United 1-0, but the goal scored by Aston Villa was controversial, and most Man United fans felt the goal should have been cancelled, even Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was pretty convinced that it was an offside and he made his opinion known in his post match interview.
The first half of the game ended in a 0-0 stalemate with Aston Villa dominating most of the game, but the second half was a more interesting game as Hause scored in the 88th minute to give the visitors an unlikely lead.
Man United were given the opportunity to equalizer in stoppage time but Bruno Fernandes missed from the spot, it was another disappointing loss for the red devil's and VAR and the referee has been blamed for the loss as the goal Aston Villa scored was contentious.
In the 88th minute a corner was flung into the box, the cross seemed easy for David De Gea to easily deal with it but he was no where to be found as the Man United goalkeeper was wrapped around the arms of an Aston Villa player, clearly the Aston Villa player was in an offside position and he was interfering in play by preventing De Gea from dealing with the ball, the referee allowed the goal to stand and VAR didn't think otherwise.
Well in my opinion the referee should have cancelled the goal on the grounds that the Aston Villa player was offside and interfering with play.
Over the past weeks Man United haven't been favored by VAR and this is the second controversial decision that has worked to help a team defeat Man United, the other decision came in the the Carabao cup as West Ham defeated Man United 1-0.
The defeat leaves Man United in 4th position while Aston Villa moved up to 8th position,
