Iconic Figures Reaction To Manchester United's Dissallowed Goal

Manchester United were denied an early lead when Edison Cavani's superbly finished strike was disallowed by referee Antony Taylor with the help of Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

Micah Richards (Manchester City legend) despite rivalry with United claims United's goal should have stood. Speaking to Sky Sports, he claimed that he doesn't recognise the game anymore. He backed Roy Keane's argument that if that was a foul they might as well go home then. He added that it was an absolute ridiculous decision and it's spoiling football.

On the other hand football commentator Peter Drury, renowned for his poetic beauty, expressed his dissatisfaction on the disallowed goal. He claim's if they disallow goals for contact like that then they are going to be in trouble as a league and as a spectacle. Indeed wise words their.

In a statement, PGMOL (refereeing body) explained the reason on why the goal didn't stand: "It wasn't part of McTominay's natural running movement, and was careless."

Above all Manchester United got their deserved revenge as they scored three goals through Fred, Cavani and Greenwood to make it 3-1.
