Man United lose to Arsenal by 3-1 as Ronaldo’s goal was disallowed

Manchester United was aggreived after losing to Arsenal in 3-1 match at Emirate.

Ralf Rangnick questioned the refereeing and VAR over four key decisions during Manchester United’s defeat to Arsenal on Saturday. “We were at least unlucky with those three or four moments,” he said.

United had the ball in the back of the net in the 58th minute when Victor Lindelof flicked the ball into the path of Cristiano Ronaldo, who swept home from eight yards for what he thought was his second goal of the game.

Initially, he did look offside but VAR checked the incident, and on second viewing, it was a tighter call then everyone thought.

Ben White’s foot was very close to playing the Portugal international onside, but, after the lines had been drawn on the pictures, offside was given.

However, Rangnick also highlighted this decision in his post-match press conference, and the German was adamant Ronaldo was onside.

He said: “The second goal of Cristiano was not offside and you can even see it in that total perspective exactly in one line. I just saw it right now after the game and if this is the right picture, and I suppose they showed me the right picture, you could see it. It was clearly one line in one line.”
