Manchester United had a goal disallowed in the first-half of their clash with Tottenham, and it’s safe to say that fans on Twitter are not happy about it.
After a cute pass from Paul Pogba and a trademark finish from Edinson Cavani, Manchester United fans would have been up on their feet in their living rooms celebrating what they thought was the opening goal.
However, following a VAR review, during which the referee was advised to go to the monitor, the goal was chalked off, with Scott McTominay being adjudged to have hit Heung-min Son in the face in the buildup.
While it was clearly intention from the Scotsman, it did send Son to the turf, preventing any possibility of him making a challenge and stopping the ball’s progression.
Though, it was hardly stonewall, with many Man United fans on Twitter convinced that the officials have got this one wrong. They’re absolutely furious.
Son acted like McTominay punched him ? embarrassing

Rashford got kicked in the ankle by Lo Celso & got nothing.
After that, #mufc have gotten a goal disallowed because McTominay freed his arm from being pulled back & Spurs have gotten 4-5 fouls for less contact than what happened to Marcus…

Is Son not trying to hold Mctominay back in this picture?

It’s accidental contact, natural action when you’re shrugging someone off
Mctominay been punished for being taller than Son.
