Manchester United went top of the Premier League for the first time since 2018 this evening as they overcame a stubborn Burnley side to win 1-0 at Turf Moor. It is the first time that United have been top of the league beyond the 15th week since the Sir Alex Ferguson era and comes on the back of a phenomenal away record in the competition. Manchester United is now unbeaten in 12 premier league Matches.

However one key talking point from that match is the credibility of the VAR. The technology has had it’s fair share of criticism as it has been good and bad in some instances. However they have always been on the right side with Manchester United until yesterday when the decision it made was one of the worst. In the first half when Manchester United made the counter attack and Edison Cavani was fouled.

The referee warned the Burnley defender by booking him with a yellow card. However the VAR was checking for a possible denial of a goal scoring opportunity and a potential red card to the Burnley defender but they suddenly turned their attention to check a tackle that Luke Shaw had made early in the build up to the counter. They claimed that it was a careless tackle by Shaw and he was booked but the card to the Burnley defender cancelled.

This was very unfair to Manchester United because even if the foul was disallowed the Defender had already made a dangerous tackle on Cavani and deserved to be booked. VAR also disallowed Harry Maguire’s goal that was very clear hence proving the fact that it was very unfair to Manchester United yesterday
