For Chelsea fans, the defeat to Manchester United is hard to stomach as VAR seemed to have robbed Chelsea of massive points at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire escaped a red card during United’s 2-0 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Monday night despite kicking out at Michy Batshuayi and went on to score the second goal for United. Kurt Zouma’s goal should have as well stood as Fred initially pushed Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta who went on to push Brandon Williams.

See how the football world has been reacting to this recent VAR controversy.

Reacting to the decision, United legend Roy Keane said: “He’s a lucky, lucky boy.

“Maguire, maybe because it’s his personality, a calm lad, but he definitely kicks out.”

“It’s the inconsistency that frustrates people. It’s not gonna go away, different people using it. But Harry Maguire’s a lucky boy.”
