See how VAR helped Man United beat Chelsea

The Premier League round 26 clash between Chelsea and Manchester United at the Bridge was marred by controversies with the Video Assistant Referee (VAR). Here we take a look at the three major talking points.

The first was Harry Maguire not being sent off. The Man United captain appeared to kick Chelsea striker Mitchy Batshuayi below the belt, similar to what got Spurs’ Son Heun-Min sent off, but VAR did not make the same call this time.

Secondly, Kurt Zouma thought he had scored for the home side, only for VAR to cancel the goal for a foul, despite the replays showing that it was Azpilicueta who was pushed before barging into Williams.

Finally, Olivier Giroud would have been a super-sub, the World Cup winner scored a goal for Chelsea, however VAR ruled it out for off-side due to his foot being ahead of the last man by just a few inches. Chelsea may have gotten at least a draw if the first two decisions went their way.

Do you think VAR made the right calls?

Chelsea V Man Utd

Ighalo made his debut as Man United beat Chelsea at the Bridge - RESULT: 0 - 2

Former Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo made his Manchester United debut in the victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Monday night, in a game that VAR took centre stage.

The Red Devils ran away 2-0 winners against Chelsea in London, with goals from Anthony Martial and captain Harry Maguire, while the Video Assistant Referee chalked off two goals from the Blues.

Manchester United were lucky on the day as they should have been reduced to 10 after Maguire appeared to have lashed out at Mitchy Batshuayi, but the VAR did not see it as violent conduct and the away side picked up all 3 points and are now 3 points behind Chelsea who are 4th.

Gabriel Paulista equalised in the 40th minute before Thomas Partey restored the away side’s lead before the break. Geoffrey Kondogbia scored the last goal of the game just before the hour mark.

Lazio V Inter Milan

Lazio continue impressive run to rise above Inter on the log - RESULT: 2 - 1

Lazio have been impressive this season under Simeon Inzaghi, and they continued with that run by defeating former table topper Inter Milan at the Stadio Olympico to move to second on the log, just one point behind Juventus.

It was a tale of two halves as Inter Milan won the first half with a goal from former Man United player Ashley young, but second-half goals from Ciro Immobile and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic earned the home side all three points.

Lazio have now gone on a run of 19 games unbeaten in the Serie A, boasting of the best defence in the league, and are also the second-best scorers in Italy.

Cologne V Bayern Munich

Bayern put 4 past Cologne to get back to winning ways - RESULT: 1 - 4

Bundesliga leaders got back to winning ways but defeating Cologne 4-1 away from home to go back to the summit of the table.

Robert Lewandowski, Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry needed just twelve minutes to give Bayern a three-goal lead before Gnabry scored his second goal after the hour mark. Mark Uth scored a consolation goal for the home side.

RB Leipzig leapfrogged Bayern with a 3-0 win a day earlier, but the German champions responded well with that victory and moved back to the top.

MY11 SAY 2-2 DRAW

This used to be a clash that determines the title, but both teams have lost their pedigree, as Chelsea will be welcoming Odion Ighalo and his Manchester United teammates to the Stamford Bridge in a battle for a top-four finish.

Match of the Week

Valencia V Atl Madrid

Valencia v Atletico Madrid - 14/02/2020 20:00
MY11 SAY 1-2

Real Madrid and Barcelona are top, but the biggest La Liga game for this weekend is the clash between Valencia and Atletico Madrid and all eyes will be at the Estadio de Mestalla.

In the last 34 meetings between these two, Atletico Madrid have won 15, whilst Valencia have won 8, 13 games ended in draws. The Los Che have not defeated the capital club in the last four games at home, this may be a good opportunity for Simeone’s men to pick all three points.

Both teams are separated by just two points and have had a terrible run of form, winning just 3 of their last 8 matches each, but Atletico Madrid are likely going to edge this encounter after 90 minutes.
