Man United fans fume at VAR over Maguire and Shaw decisions vs Burnley

1 min read

Manchester United fans were left scratching their heads after seeing a Harry Maguire goal disallowed against Burnley.

Maguire saw his towering header ruled out for a foul in the 36th minute of Tuesday night’s Premier League showdown at Turf Moor.

The England defender rose above Erik Pieters to find the net, only for his celebrations to be cut short by referee Kevin Friend.

Replays suggested it was harsh on the United centre-back but despite VAR being in use, the decision was not overturned.

The match was goalless at the time and that was the way it remained at the half-time interval.

United can go three points clear at the top of the table ahead of their crunch clash with current leaders Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

Former Liverpool and England striker Peter Crouch – renowned for his aerial prowess – had some sympathy for Maguire, tweeting: “Not sure I’d have many goals left if Maguire’s was no goal.”

And United supporters agreed, taking to social media to voice their displeasure.

“Maguire goal disallowed because he can jump higher,” one supporter said on Twitter.

“The game has gone soft,” said another.

Meanwhile, a third fan tweeted: “Absolutely nothing wrong with that Maguire header.”
